  • Are you absolutely sure your database HOST address is 172.0.0.1? Or did you mean to enter the localhost IP 127.0.0.1?

    Also, while space is a valid character in a MySQL database name and username, it often has to be quoted, and I’ve personally run into all sort of issues with this in the past. You can save yourself a lot of trouble down the road by choosing a database name and username with no space or other special characters.
