connect to MSYQL with Perl
I have a perl script in my cgi-bin for connecting to my mysql database. The connect script isn't working. Using the Perl Module, DBI:MYSQL I'm unable to get the following work: $dbh = DBI->connect( "dbi:mysql:bigcom5_redearthpublishing:localhost:3306", "", "") The resultant error is: Access denied for user 'bigcom5_redearth'@'localhost' (using password: YES) I've also tested the dbi:mysql statement with and without the port number -- same results. I've set up a user for this database in my cpanel, but for security, I've removed both the username and psswd from this post. Thanks!
