The e-commerce.

I can't connect to MySQL server from osCommerce


Recommended Posts

On the first few installation screens of osCommerce I get the error message -


A test connection made to the database was NOT successful

Host 'lentech' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server - Has anyone got a resolution to this problem...?


I am running a Windows 2000 pro PC that has IIS installed (used for other development) and also MySQL 5 along with PHP 4.3.6. All applications installed without a hitch which has left me even more confused.


I have checked and rechecked all my passwords, settings and usernames for the osCommerce DB that I created and still no success.


I have Norton Internet Security and AntiVirus software installed on my PC and even stopped both of these and tried again, still with no success.


Can anyone help please....

Thanks for the reply as I am at a dead end.


I have tried my PC name as suggested in the error message and I have also tried local host which then gives me the error message


'Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client'


but I am using MySQL 5 sothis error message seems well out of sorts.


Any other views or suggestions would be very greatly received.
