Full Version: Connecting to a database
HTMLHelp Forums > Programming > Databases

I am trying to connect to a database but i get this error:

Connection failed: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'ecovibdc'@'localhost' (using password: YES) ?>

Attached is the file in question.

Thanks in anticipation.

That tutorial is dated in 2006. You should find a newer tutorial instead. Also, write your Database connection code by itself so you know if it works. You can always add it into the code later. Not to mention you assembled the code badly.
You can try this code for solving this error:

private $host = "localhost";
private $db_name = "db_dbtest"; // Database name
private $username = "db_user"; // your database username
private $password = "db_password"; // Your password
public $conn;
