    Keep getting an error Access denied for user such and such using passowrd YES.

    I am using the username and password that I use to login to plesk control panel on our server. I have also tried various DB usernames and passwords.

    Anyone have an idea of why this is not working?

    Using the lastest windows version of mysql Adminsitrator on a remote computer.

    Mysql version 4.0.24

    Did you run mysql_fix_privilege_tables after the MySQL upgrade?

    Im not a Plesk Guru but have some Mysql experience.

    My guess would be that as you are trying to access mysql from a remote computer that computer does not have permission to access it.

    If you have ssh access type

    mysql -u admin -p
    Type your admin password

    You get to a mysql> prompt


    mysql> use mysql
    mysql> select * from user;

    This will show the user privilage table - take a look at the host column, I would guess yours will say localhost which means that only users from the localhost can connect.

    Take a look at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/privilege-system.html for an explanation of how privlages work in mysql

    Hope this helps
