    Hello, I recently downloaded mySQL Query Browser 1.2.6b from the mySQL website and wanted to use it to test some things out on our webserver running WHM/cPanel.

    I am having problems connecting and I am not sure why. Here is the error message:

    I'm not sure what the issue is. I have gone into cPanel and said to allow access from host 125.236.%.%. My current IP falls under this range. Should the error message say I am trying to log in with the '%' wildcards in the username? That seems strange.

    I am running mySQL 4.0.27

    I checked to make sure I was using the correct mySQL port

    Does anyone else use this tool? Any ideas? Thanks

    does the user you are logging in as actually have rights over that database?

    Yes, I am logging in with the same user/pass that I am using in my PHP scripts to connect.

    MySQL only uses three methods of authentication:
    Permission, User/Pass, IP address.

    1. Check and make sure that you added a user and pass. double check them.
    2. Make sure that you added a Database.
    3. Make sure you added that user to that Database with full permissions.
    4. Make sure your IP address is in the access hosts.

    You seem you have the correct syntax for your IP address but go ahead and try putting it in again as your full IP without wildcards. If you check all of that and you still can't log in you are going to have to provide us more detail.
