I'm trying to acces a MySQL database that was set up by the site owner, but it throws a "ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ~@* (using password: YES)" every time I try to access it.
The account I'm using is not the site owner's account, but it has full control of the subdomain where the MySQL database is set up:
DOMAIN // don't have access
forums.DOMAIN // this one I have access to
mysql_db.forums.DOMAIN // the database I can't access, though I control the subdomain
I know I'm using the correct parameters for the username, password, database, name of database, etc.
This is not a third-part program issue (as per http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Mysql#Connect_to_Your_MySQL_Database_from_Third-Party_Programs) because it's on the same server.
If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
