Ok, following this section...
After creating new MySQL database you have to assign a user to it. You create a new user in the MySQL® Databases section of cPanel and make sure that it has the same name and password as those you used in your project (the one you downloaded from subfolder in step 2). If you create a new user with a new database password chances are that you’ll get an error “Access denied for user…” at the end of the process.
which is the error im getting.
in thie original config files on my offline (working) site, this is set as
Code: Select all
in the uploaded site these username and password in the config files need to be changed to the ones set for the newly setup database user?
In the original offline site, I have a saved root username and password different from 'root', pretty sure this was setup when the original OC was setup the first time.
Doesnt work leaving the uploaded config files user and pass to root either.
What am i missing?
Its taken nearly a year to finish my site and populate the database, this is falling flat on its face at the finish line
Im not a coder or web designer, I just dont understand this bit...
