    Question using php..mysql help needed, very simple

    ok i hate to make myself into a serious newbie, but i really need help. im using a PHP script which uses mySQL, and i need to know what to put in the mysql host, server, username, password, and all that stuff.

    i went to the mySQL site looking for answers but its all so advanced...and nothing really makes any sense.

    any help is really appreciated! thanks

    host is ussually "localhost". Though I ussually leave that blank "" on windows servers. And the username and password is usually whatever you use to get itno your site admin panel. Depends on your host I guess.

    - Could not connect to database; check your settings.
    The mySQL error was: Access denied for user: 'chronicles5@localhost' (Using password: YES)

    i tried that and i'm getting this error. i tried putting in localhost and leaving it blank, but it still says '@localhost'

    do i need to install mysql or something? i really dont know what im doing lol. thanks for the help

    Is this on your own system or from a hosting provider?

    I would suggest you contact them. Only they would know the details of your service and how they setup up your passwords and such.
