Hello I installed MYSQL and Apache via XAMPP. And I am trying some codes from a textbook while Apace and MYSQL are running. I am trying to connect MYSQL with this code :
<?php //connect to MySQL; note we’ve used our own parameters- you should use //your own for hostname, user, and password $connect = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "mysqlpass") or die ("Hey loser, check your server connection."); //create the main database mysql_create_db("wiley") or die(mysql_error()); ....
But I am getting this:
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\test\createmovie.php on line 4
Hey loser, check your server connection.
Could you please tell me how to fix this situation?
