  • Hi,
    I have some php in my wordpress page to display information pulled from a database table, however recently it showed up the following error:

    Database access failed: Access denied for user ‘masjidze’@’localhost’ (using password: NO)

    I don’t understand how this could be as the php code is using “global $wpdb” which is basically calling and talking to a table located within the main WP database; using the same credentials; however the rest of the site both front and back end works

    Any help on this one please?

    If the code you’re using between the insert_php tags used to work but doesn’t work now, then something changed. If the code between the tags wasn’t changed, then something else changed. Perhaps a new plugin was activated that interferes with it; but that’s just a wild guess because I don’t have access to your system.

    On the other hand, if this is new code you’re putting between insert_php tags, then it may be the global variable isn’t as global as it might be assumed. The
    section on the instruction page and the section immediately below that may provide information you can use.

    Try echoing the value or type for $wpdb, then check your error logs. They may provide a clue.
