MySQL Access denied using local host with ASP.Net VB RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1312231374 posted

    My data connection works fine when running the site from the server.  I use this data connection;

    <add name="MyConnectionString" connectionString="Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};&quot;IPAddress;database=MyDatabaseName;password=MyPassword&quot;uid=MyUserName;pwd=MyPassword" providerName="System.Data.Odbc"/>

    However, when I try to run using source code and local host, I get this error:

    ERROR [HY000] [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'(My IP Address).hsd1.ca.comcast.net' (using password: YES)

    Any ideas why?

    Thank you,

    Right off, I might suspect they are not using that particular MySQL .NET driver.  I've seen that error before and I think that's what it was. Not 100% sure tho...
