using mysql on fedora 6

I've imported a database from another server it loaded up fine. Now I've added a user and am trying to run a php file the php file says cannot connect to database. Using the same login as specified in the php file I'm able to connect to mysql admintrator. The php file is on the localhost as is the sql server. Perissions have been set to allow the localhost to connect. Want to run down a list of reasons I may be not able to connect to the DB? I know my php code is correct as it can connect to my old server.

is selinux running?  if so then it might create permission issues if not configured properly.

setenforce 0

the above command will disable selinux and try testing the code once again.

sounds like ygoutham is correct, you can check to see if that is the problem by typing:\
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'you'@'%'
    ->     IDENTIFIED BY 'some_pass' WITH GRANT OPTION;
this will give "you" access to all from any host. Make sure you delete this user after you are done.

i'm using the gui mysql admin, for the user all the resource limits are set at 0 which is infinite I take it, the user was granted access to the proper database yet it still won't connect.

try doing it from cli.
mysql -u user -p password
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'you'@'%'

what does

connect to

mysql mysql

select * from user

and

select * from table_priv

does this have imgsrv?  see through the info.  these tables must have the user details and his rights list in them for the user to be able to connect.
