Access Denied


Recommended Posts



I'm an old school WordPress user who is trying to update to the newest version. Everything seems fine until I try to import my backed up database of old entries, comments, and categories.


I've tried importing it two ways

- by having MyPHP import and create the database directly from my txt backup file of the old database

- by letting Fantastico create the database for me and then trying to import via MyPHP's Import feature


Both times I get an error saying: Access Denied for user 'myusername'@'localhost' to database 'myusername_wrdp1'


What am I doing wrong? The username shown is the only user on the database and that user has full access to the database.


I even tried creating a new database using MyPHP and it gives me the same error. Yet if I create a database using MySQL, it does so with no problem. Using MySQL, though, I can't import an old database, so it doesn't do me much good.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm just glad I backed everything up before I went and did all this. :tchrocks:
