Setting Up Multiple Users

I am getting an error code of 1044 access denied to user.

  1. I made a new user <code>

GRANT SELECT ON treehouse_movie_db.*
TO user1@'%'
IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; </code>

  1. flush privileges
  2. Made a new connection.
  3. connected
  4. Type in Use treehouse_movie_db

I get error code 1044

I do see that the treehouse_movie_db does not show up in the pane. Only a test db shows up. My XAMPP is running MYSQL. Of course the admin user can use the db.

Hi Tony,

Make sure you have ' localhost' in your hosts file.

GRANT ALL on . to 'root'@'' identified by '$roots_password' WITH GRANT OPTION;

Good luck! Art

If I remember correctly my port was set to 3307 on MYSQL server but 3306 in my script. So I guess it was not finding the db and kept telling me access denied. When I set the port to the 3306 on the server it worked.

Thanks for the response
