Hi, I'm now using cPanel and I was hoping someone could help me out.
somehow I cant connect to a MySQL database that I have setup. I googled a bit but I couldn't find a proper sollution.


the php code I am using to connect is:
$connect = mysql_connect("mysql02.totaalholding.nl","joosta1x_admin_joosta1x_MyAlly","PASSWORD") or die("My Ally couldn't connect host");

host=mysql02.totaalholding.nl
Cpanel username=joosta1x
database username=joosta1x_admin
database name=joosta1x_MyAlly


I'm getting the following error when trying to connect to the MySQL server:

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'joosta1x_admin_j'@'ip565f0a57.direct-adsl.nl' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\webapp\connect\connectOnline.inc.php on line 2
My Ally couldn't connect host

I hope someone can tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thankyou.

Kind regards,

Joost

This line doesn't seem right:

"joosta1x_admin_joosta1x_MyAlly"

You are stringing together the database username and database name into one long username from what I can see. Probably should be this instead:

mysql_connect("mysql02.totaalholding.nl","joosta1x_admin","joosta1x_MyAlly","PASSWORD") or die("My Ally couldn't connect host");
