The e-commerce.

test connection to db not successful


Recommended Posts

While installatin oscommerce at a new server, I am getting this problem:


New Installation


Database Import


A test connection made to the database was NOT successful.


The error message returned is:


Access denied for user: 'velocity_osc1@localhost' (Using password: YES)


Please click on the Back button below to review your database server settings.


If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company.


I did add the user to the database and had granted that user all privileges. I even made a new database and added new users to it, but problem is similar for the new database too.


If someone can help me out, it will be really great.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean - because you don't add users to databases. You need to set up a User for MySQL from within your web hosting control panel, or, if this is a dedicated server then you'll probably need to set it in mysql.ini
