  • Deployment Database access denied for user root@localhost using password: YES

    I deployed a project on MAC pc using localhost. I am going to call the project "Project-1".
    I then tried to test the deployed application on a Windows PC, so did the following:

    1) I copied the folder generated by the deployment process and copied the folder over to the wwwroot folder on the Windows PC.
    2) I generated a dump of MySql database for the application
    3) I imported the application's database to MySql on the Windows pc and created the same connection used by the application.
    4) When entering the URL: http://localhost:86/Project-1 I get an access error

    An error occurred while connecting to the database:
    Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    How can I fix this access problem, seems like the password to the CONNECTION is not the same and won't let me run the application.

    you need to copy the zip created on deployment to the new hosting/test area, then when u access the url it still shows an error but with a link to acces the backend to edit the login details for the new host.

    or u could also:

    if till problems would redeploy your project and copy the zip created over.

      Thank you JamieO.
      What I had to do to resolve this is that I had to configure the PROD environment on the new PC. something I forgot to do.
      Open web browser and enter: http://localhost:86/Project-1/_lib, on a MAC:
      ScriptCase Prod environment screen comes up
      Enter new password
      Create or modify a connection to the database
      Test the connection and exit.
      Open web browser and enter: http://localhost:86/Project-1 on a MAC: ---- >> done.
