Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user ‘steve_wff’@‘208.113.246.18’ (using password: YES) in /home/steve_wff/worldfamousflags.com/usssa/system/database/mysql.php on line 6

Are you using the correct password?

I wasn’t, but I changed it, now I’m getting this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ’.’, expecting ’)’ in /home/steve_wff/worldfamousflags.com/usssa/system/database/mysql.php on line 5

This is my code:
public function __construct($mysql.worldfamousflags, $steve_wff, $aqui_sigo_yo_2245, $wff_shop) {
if (!$this->connection = mysql_connect($mysql.worldfamousflags, $steve_wff, $aqui_sigo_yo_2245) {
exit(‘Error: Could not make a database connection using ’ . $steve_wff . ’@’ . $mysql.worldfamousflags.com);
}

Why are the periods showing up? It doesn’t seem to like them. Perhaps you have them in the wrong places.

I don’t understand why your code has an error message in it.

polycinco's avatar

I don’t understand either. I changed it to underscores now I get this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_EXIT in /home/steve_wff/worldfamousflags.com/usssa/system/database/mysql.php on line 7

This is my code:
exit(‘Error: Could not make a database connection using ’ . $steve_wff . ’@’ . $mysql_worldfamousflags_com);

Is your code the error message you are receiving, or is that error message in your code?

polycinco's avatar

That’s what I’m getting when I go to this site where the code is:
http://www.worldfamousflags.com/usssa/

My guess is that it is telling you you are not constructing the name properly. I would expect it to want your name in a standard email address format. But you’re getting those extra periods in the name. But that’s just a guess. I don’t know what the site is expecting.

Thank you, I have no idea either

worldfamousflags has to be specified as as string like this:

‘worldfamousflags’

with the quotation marks.

replace all instances of $mysql.worldfamousflags with $mysql.‘worldfamousflags’

and I see there’s one instance of $mysql.worldfamousflags.com.. replace that with: $mysql.‘worldfamousflags.com’

ninjacolin's avatar

mysql_connect(string, string, string, boolean)

more.

polycinco's avatar

Thanks I tried that and now I get this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ’.’, expecting ’)’ in /home/steve_wff/worldfamousflags.com/usssa/system/database/mysql.php on line 5

This is line 5: public function __construct($mysql.‘worldfamousflags.com’, $steve_wff, $aqui_sigo_yo_2245, $wff_shop) {

ninjacolin's avatar

oh man.. this is getting technical and code specific. You’re not declaring your constructor properly and I don’t know what paramters you need.

Try: public function __construct(){ with nothing inside the brackets.

polycinco's avatar

Oh my gosh, that’s bad. Nothing now I get this: http://www.worldfamousflags.com/usssa/

Do you know a lot about coding? I’m just a beginner. Could you help me? I’ll pay you some cash, I don’t have much but I will pay for your help!

ninjacolin's avatar

lol. I have to run unfortunately. Hopefully someone can help you.
Yes, I can tell you’re a beginner. hahaha.

earlier you shared this:
public function __construct($mysql.worldfamousflags, $steve_wff, $aqui_sigo_yo_2245, $wff_shop) {*
if (!$this->connection = mysql_connect($mysql.worldfamousflags, $steve_wff, $aqui_sigo_yo_2245) {
exit(‘Error: Could not make a database connection using ’ . $steve_wff . ’@’ . $mysql.worldfamousflags.com);
}
...

Does that code start at line 5?

polycinco's avatar

ha I know, what did I get myself into.

Yes that is the beginning of line 5 and it ends in line 8.

Last night I changed the password of the database but I didn’t think it would have anything to do with this and then I pressed modify by accident and maybe that’s whats causing this? I tried restoring the database but nothing. Do you think that had something to do with this?
