Repeat error with phpMyAdmin


I’m installing some open source code to get one of my websites up and running on a shared server, and having quite a bit of difficulty understanding the error message that keeps popping up, and what I can do to fix it.

The error is: [color=#FF0000]#1044 - Access denied for user ‘xxxx’@‘’ to database ‘strict’ [/color]

And the opening lines of code are: use strict; use Getopt::Long;

As you can see, it stops me right at the first line. From all my googling and such, I don’t see a problem with the term ‘strict’ as a whole. And my user has all privileges already, so no restrictions there.

Is there a workaround to the term? Is this a known issue with the Shared Servers?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.


What you have there looks like the start of a Perl script, not MySQL data, so phpMyAdmin is the wrong place to be putting it. Without further information, it’s hard to say where it should go, though. What are you trying to run here?
