A database error has occurred

Postby satoken » Wed Oct 05, 2005 8:58 pm

Dear Sir,

When istalling OJS, I got the message:

A database error has occurred: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)

Any comment would be very appreciated.

I had the same problem. I found that in installing ojs if I assigned any
other parameter than localhost for host, the ojs installer created an
error message saying that it was impossible to connect to the database (MySQL).

Please verify that your OJS database has been granted the appropriate permissions. For example:

Code: Select all

CREATE DATABASE myojs2database;
GRANT ALL ON myojs2database TO myusername@myhostname IDENTIFIED BY 'mypassword';

Ensure that the hostname matches the login information given to the OJS installer.

Note that it's generally not a good policy to use root as your database user.
