[resolved] unable to connect to joomla db (2 posts)

    I get the following error ...

    "Erreur !: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'whyberwyn'@'localhost' (using password: NO)"

    ...when I try to run the import application. I've looked at the Joomla dashboard, and I see that the db lives at localhost on http://www.whyberwyn.com. Username and password are both set in configuration.php and I've copied them and the db name properly.

    WP 3.4.1
    Joomla 1.5.20 they are on different servers.

    I find it weird that it's saying "using password: NO" when there is a password. Any idea what the issue is here?

    You must enter the real hostname of the Joomla database server. It is not localhost if WordPress and Joomla are not on the same server. Moreover the WordPress server must have access to the Joomla database (that means that the port 3306 must be open on the Joomla database server to the WordPress server). The message "using password: NO" is a mySQL message.
