I need to upgrade the Drupal 6 core and want to test it out on my local machine before I involve my site here.
I have used the phpMyadmin on the server side to export the database into localhost. I imported it into a new database, test1. I then brought everything under sites, modules etc to localhost. I checked settings.php:
$db_url = ‘mysqli://root@localhost/test1’;
$db_prefix = ‘’;
I am using the default login “root” for localhost
I keep getting this message below. It thinks my mysql user is stpeters and the host is incorrect.
Access denied for user ‘stpeters’@‘static-162-83-94-95.culp.east.verizon.net’ (using password: YES)
Any suggestions where to look ? Thanks
