I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
I tried that to no avail. If I change the password for the user does it change it in the configure.php file as well?.
I have looked at the configure.php file and the user is the same one that is in question. Access denied for user: 'rolltexi_oscom@localhost'.
Do you have access to phpMyAdmin if so go to phpMyAdmin and locate the database on the screen should be the line similar to 'rolltexi_oscom@localhost' where the first part 'rolltexi_oscom is the username and the second part localhost is the servername in the left hand window is the database name so the only part missing is the password which you can get from privelages..
Now cross reference this information in your configure.php files both admin and catalog so that you should have.
define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', ''); // your pass case sensitive.
define('DB_DATABASE', ''); name of database taken from phpMyAdmin.
OK, I figured it out. What happened was when I enabled the php MYAdmin it assigned it a random password and for whatever reason stuck THAT password in my damn configure files. At least that's what I think may have happened. I matched the passwords in the configure.php and in the phpMYAdmin and it worked..
After spending 6 weeks configuring, tweaking, and dolling up my new catalog I had one minor thing left to do..
I wanted to change the address section where a new user enters his info. Basically the part where it says Post Code, I wanted Zip Code. not a major change..
Well, before I could do anything with the MYSQL database I had to enable the PHP Admin. So I did that. I was able to look at the database and see where I needed to make the change. BEFORE I made ANY changes I wanted to make sure I had a backup, so I did a backup (just like I did the night before)..
I decided to go back into the ADMIN section to look at something else but alas got this nasty error: (I get this same error when I try to go into the catalog as well).
Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: '/osc/admin/includes/functions/database.php on line 19.
Unable to connect to database server!.
What the hell have I done?.
Thanks in advance...
That's fine.. there's a good chance yer still alright.. log back into your mysql admin and add your user to the database again with permissions on the database in question..
