I don't know why you would make your password )X7zlBx)XgZ5 ... My only suggestion is to use the root user and no password.

$conn = mysql_connect("localhost","root","");

This problem is not related to setting up password or that database connection is not established.

If someone come accross with this kind of problem I solved this by goinig into following steps:

Wamserver-->click on wampserver-->PHP-->php.ini file-->"ON" the short php tag

Always keep the short php tag "on" in php.ini file
