The e-commerce.

Server was changed now mysql is gone and shop is g


Recommended Posts



My hosting company changed servers...now the mysql I had working for my shop is gone (all mysql's are gone). They changed my name for my username .... it was just pink... now they made it pinkstar.


My original mysql name/db was something like pink_osc3


I can not make the name pink again (pink_osc3). Because it is pinkstar now.


I tried creating a new mysql like pinkstar_osc3...and changed a couple configure.php files to that new name and database... but still no luck I still get the



Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'pinkstar_pink@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /usr/home/pinkstar/public_html/dreamshop/includes/functions/database.php on line 19

Unable to connect to database server!


Does any pro know what else I can do? I really hope it is not truly gone. I spent sooo much time on this shop in the past and had it working great....until my hosts changed servers :(


Also I see my new cpanel doesn't even have oscommerce or the fantastico I installed it from :(


Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

You said that your new username is "pinkstar". In the error code it say you tried to access the database with the username "pinkstar_pink".


I also see that you have your mysql server set to "localhost". If you are using a shared host, you need to get the mysql host location from your host. Usually something like:




I agree with ecartz. If I had a host do that to me I would change immediately.
