I’ve installed Moveable Type 3.1, guided by the really useful instructions on Wombat Nation. I’ve set up a mysql database, set up a user, and a mysql host. When I try to use MT I get the following error:
Got an error: Bad ObjectDriver config: Connection error: Access denied for user: ‘firstname.lastname@example.org/255.255.240.0’ to database ‘mt_tq’
This sounds a lot like the problems described in this recent thread:
Their solution was to delete the old mysql user and create a new one, but I’ve done that a few times now with no luck. I’ve also deleted the old data base and started from scratch a few times, and I’ve tried (in desparation) allowing connections from any host.
Note that I can log into the data base from the unix shell (mysql -umrdatabase -hMYSQLHOST …) or using PHPmyadmim with this same user name and password.
Thanks - Robert
