[resolved] Problems getting Duplicator to work at Host Gator (7 posts)

    REPOSTING AS THE OTHER POSTING SHOWED [RESOLVED]

    I'm also having problems getting the Installer to run.

    The message I get is as follows:
    ---------------------
    server code: 200
    status: OK
    response:
    INSTALL ERROR!
    DATABASE CONNECTION FAILED!
    Access denied for user 'susanyu'@'192.185.147.153' (using password: YES)
    --------------------

    I think where I am getting confused is the "host" field. I assume that is the name of the site (americandentistry.com) but maybe not. I even tried the address of 192.185.147.153 but that did not work either.

    I'm stumped!

    OK, I went through all the tutorials and documents and thanks to the video I found that I had not given the database user the authorizations needed. Once I did that and tried the Test Connection I got Success in both elements..

    Server Connected: Success
    Database Found: Success

    However, that was with localhost as the host. Once I changed that to either the url of the site (www.xxxx.xx) or to the actual IP address (which is what HostGator recommends) I get a failure.

    The Test Connection no longer gives Success (Fail & Fail) but equally as troubling is that when I run Deployment I get back this message:

    server code: 200
    status: OK
    response:
    INSTALL ERROR!
    DATABASE CONNECTION FAILED!
    Access denied for user 'amerdent_susanyu'@'192.185.147.153' (using password: YES)

    What is really strange is that the IP Address I typed in ended in 156 (I checked it several times) and yet the error comes back with 153... ODD at best.

    More suggestions??

    Thanks for the assist.

    My sites are on hostgator and I did not have any of these issues. I did use localhost. I created the DB and DB user for this.

    Well damn! Why didn't I try that. I tried every possible entry in the host field EXCEPT localhost. That was prepopulated.... but greyed out so I .... hell I don't know what I thought. But now that I have actually typed in "localhost".... it went smoothly.

    You are a lifesaver V. Baxter THANK YOU very much.
