<html> <head> <title>MySQL Connection Test</title> </head> <body> <h2> <?php $connection = mysql_connect("localhost","username","password") or die("Sorry - unable to connect to MySQL"); echo ("Congratulations - you connected to MySQL"); ?> </h2> </body> </html>
I'm trying to connect to my website's MySQL database, but I'm not sure how to.. I was following a example in one of my PHP Tutorial Books, but I'm not sure what to put for my Localhost. I have a website, hellsbellboy.com and it has 2 MySQL databases, has Apache and all that.. but I'm not sure what I'm suppose to put in place for Localhost.. I thought it was suppose to be www.hellsbellboy.com, then my username and password but that doesn't work.
this is the error i get when i try and check it:
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'hellsbel_@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /home/hellsbel/public_html/mysqltest.php on line 6
I cannot connect to the database because: Access denied for user: 'hellsbel_@localhost' (Using password: YES)
Thank you for any help.
