Hello

I have this strange behaviour in DW 8:

When I try to test a recordset, there is an alert box saying:

"Access denied for user: database_user@localhost (Using password: YES)"

This error comes when a user is using no password when the DB server needs it for connection or the user is using an incorrect password that the original set for him.

The strange thing comes when I know that the user is using the correct password and all other applications (even testing the website with this user) works fine.

DW only accepts root password, no other user and that thing didnt happened before.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks alot

The password to the db should not be determined by the user

in you Connections dir the connection file should have the password set like this



$hostname = "localhost";
$database = "databasename";
$username ="appname";
$password = "password";
