new installation


Recommended Posts



I have uploaded my site up to my webspace but am getting this message


Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'website_mystore@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /var/www/html/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!


Is there an area of oscommerce which takes you step by step through the process or can anybody advise?


many thanks

Have you created an SQL database ???  Also, have you assigned yourself as a user to the db ???

Users in lvdata

lvsam_sam (Privileges: ALL PRIVILEGES)


Connection Strings

Perl $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:lvsam_lvdata:localhost","lvsam_sam","<PASSWORD HERE>");

PHP $dbh=mysql_connect ("localhost", "lvsam_sam", "<PASSWORD HERE>") or die ('I cannot connect to the database because: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db ("lvsam_lvdata");


I did all this but i still can not login
