Development Tools Database Foundations Securing and Maintaining a MySQL Database Setting up Multiple Users

When im trying to test the connection for the admin remote db connection I am unable to connect to it.

Your connection attempt failed for user 'admin' from your host to server at 127.0.0.1:3306: Access denied for user 'admin'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Please: 1 Check that mysql is running on server 127.0.0.1 2 Check that mysql is running on port 3306 (note: 3306 is the default, but this can be changed) 3 Check the admin has rights to connect to 127.0.0.1 from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines) 4 Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for 127.0.0.1 connecting from the host address you're connecting from

It looks like you are trying to connect to localhost not a remote database?

Hi! I found the first fart of the video when he connects to a remote server using the admin user a little confusing, because i have only a local database with the root user set up. Fortunately forlorn to create users you can use this connection. Don't need the admin user at all. You can proceed from the 4:30 on the video.
