    I am creating a website in Adobe Dreamweaver CS6. I am trying to add a page with a membership form that inputs fields to a database.
    I have set up a local test server(using xampp) that has worked. Ie the form accepts the data and passes it through to the database.
    However, when I put the form and files to the Remote Server and try to access the membership entry form page ( I get the following error:

    Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Access denied for user 'chopinau_admin'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/chopinau/public_html/Connections/memconn.php on line 9

    Fatal error: Access denied for user 'chopinau_admin'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/chopinau/public_html/Connections/memconn.php on line 9

    code is:
    # FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
    # Type="MYSQL"
    # HTTP="true"
    $hostname_memconn = "localhost";
    $database_memconn = "chopinau_membership";
    $username_memconn = "chopinau_admin";
    $password_memconn = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
    $memconn = mysql_pconnect($hostname_memconn, $username_memconn, $password_memconn) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);

    At wits end. Greatful for any and all advice.

    Hello :)

    The error message indicates the database user is denied access to the database. Have you checked to ensure the database user is added to the database? Also, have you tried changing the database user's password to match what is used in the configuration file?

    Thank you.
