MySql: error: ‘Access denied for user using password: YES)’

Posted in MySql by wwwebber on December 20, 2008

Just wanted to post this in order to, possibly, prevent other people from a bit of frustration when attempting to connect to a MySql database. I am int the  process of creating a private tutoring services site that makes use of PhpFox’s social network script. Anyway, after creating the database in cpanel  , and adding a user I tried to connect to the database. It turns out the MySql error message that I got “Access denied for user using password: YES)” . Now, I knew that I wasn’t using ‘YES’ as a password! What the hell!   However, it turns out that , MySql generates this error to mean that I was indeed trying to use a password(hence the “YES”).
