MySQL connection error (HY000/1045): Access denied for user

Postby ccaptn » 23. August 2018 21:20

Attention XAMPP & MySQL Gurus!
Help! Getting No traction on a DB connection error!
still cannot get the planets to line up!
*^&%$#!! totally frustrated!

I know that I am not the first to post on this subject, but am having no luck with anything I have googled so far.

Warning: mysqli_connect(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'
(using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\dbconnect.php on line 8 (the mysqli_connect call)

Environment:
Win 7 Pro
Installed XAMPP V3.2.2, running Apache & MySQL

Get this error trying to connect from php script to MySQL DB:

From the browser (Chrome), running this:
http://localhost:81/dbconnect.php

<?php
# db connect parms
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbuser = 'root';
$dbpwd = 's3kr1t';
$dbname = 'gmap1';

$dbcon = mysqli_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpwd, $dbname);
?>

Returns this error:

Warning: mysqli_connect(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'
(using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\dbconnect.php on line 8 (the mysqli_connect call)

So far I have done this:

* added a root password for root (default was no password)
* logged on to phpMyAdmin as root
* created a db (gmap1), table, and loaded data to it
* in phpMyAdmin selected the table data and successfully exported it
* confirmed that MySQL user root has all db access privileges:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY PASSWORD 'passroot';
So, root should be able to connect to the db!

I have worn google out researching this problem tried everything suggested to no avail

Any help much appreciated! I will even give you the rest of the day off!

*** update to my post ***

Still getting this access denied error trying to connect to mysql from the command line:

C:\xampp\mysql\bin>mysql --user=root --password
Enter password: ********
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

The Control Panel shows port 3308 being used for MySQL.
However, starting MySQL, gives the following "Problem detected" message.
But then it shows mysql running, despite the supposed port conflict.

Note that I set the port in C:\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini to 3308:
port = 3308
I also set the port to 3308 in C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.2\data\my.ini

However, I still get the following "Port 3306 in use" message, even though I changed the port to 3308 to fix the supposed port conflict.

2:52:36 PM [mysql] Attempting to stop MySQL app...
2:52:37 PM [mysql] Status change detected: stopped
2:52:40 PM [mysql] Problem detected!
2:52:40 PM [mysql] Port 3306 in use by ""C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.2\bin\mysqld.exe" "--defaults-file=C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.2\data\my.ini" "MariaDB""!
2:52:40 PM [mysql] MySQL WILL NOT start without the configured ports free!
2:52:40 PM [mysql] You need to uninstall/disable/reconfigure the blocking application
2:52:40 PM [mysql] or reconfigure MySQL and the Control Panel to listen on a different port
2:52:40 PM [mysql] Attempting to start MySQL app...
2:52:41 PM [mysql] Status change detected: running

I have run out of ideas of things to change to resolve this. Still can't connect to MySQL.

port 3306 in use by MariaDB. You must change MariaDB port or change mysql port.

1. Stop the xampp server, if it is already running.
2. Edit the value to "port" in
xampp/mysql/bin/my.ini
Code:
# Password = your_password
port = 3306 ---> 3307
socket = "/ xampp / mysql / mysql.sock"

and here also

Code:
# The MySQL server [ mysqld ]
port = 3306 ---> 3307
socket = "/ xampp / mysql / mysql.sock"

maybe this can help you

I too am having this problem. I am wondering if there could be a problem with having 2 sets of configuration files for mySql since there is the xampp configuration files and whatever files reside in c:/program files/mysql server 8.0/bin? Is this a possibility.

Please report here if you find a solution to your problem. I'm about to give up on trying to learn PHP because I can't find any development programs that I'm smart enough to install.

What is the need of having TWO MySQL installations? Do you also have TWO Word Installations, TWO InternetExplorers, TWO AdobePhotoshop, TWO Apache, TWO Notepads, TWO Ftp Servers etc.??

Simply de-install MySQL from Program Files.

Good point, Nobbie. I was operating under the false assumption that the xampp installer installed only a module for interfacing/configuring mySql. I didn't realize it actually installed a whole separate mySQL database installation.

"Do you also have TWO Word Installations, TWO InternetExplorers, TWO AdobePhotoshop, TWO Apache, TWO Notepads, TWO Ftp Servers etc.??"

Yes. I subscribe to the Noah's arc computing philosophy, maybe you've heard of it.

I haven't heard about it yet, but you probably mean a male and a female?!

Well I don't know if its possible the OP did what I did and inadvertently installed 2 instances of mySQL, or if they ever solved the problem.

Once I figured out I had two separate installations I simply set the root password for the 2nd mySQL installation and exported my database from the first installation and imported it into the 2nd. Its working fine now.
