look in the user table within the mysql database ...

is access defined 'user-xxx'@'localhost' or 'user-xxx'@''


"If you specify a host name when trying to connect, but get an error message where the host name is not shown or is an IP address, it means that the MySQL server got an error when trying to resolve the IP address of the client host to a name."

@Smeagel13 its localhost and root...no change!

Have you changed user privileges? If not your username should be 'root' an not'local host'. If you are using 'local host' for whatever reason that maybe you shouldnt have that space i.e. 'localhost' rather than 'local host'.

Local development privileges by default are 'root' as your username and '' as your password.

Let us know if you get any mor einformation to troubleshoot. Perhaps some copy and psting of errors would help further.

Are you saying you've tried both? Have you checked to make sure the database exists (wasn't deleted accidentally) and also make sure in the connection call the correct database is requested, no spelling mistakes.
