SELECT command denied to user?

can someone please help i don't know that much about mysql server and this problem is driving me mad....

I am using a free CMS system and when i try to add a new page or a new comment etc i get the following error:
SELECT command denied to user 'savaega1e1'@'ICSERVER-cf1.lnc.net' for table 'tables'

now i have emailed the CMS company and they have stated that they dont have a table called 'tables' (which i have checked and they dont) and the version i am using is stable so it must be something to do with my permissions, it has nothing to do with the CMS. ok so its a mysql issues then....

I have my own dedicated server, but use a remote database server from my hosting company, i have never had permission issues before. why would the error be asking for a table which does not exist nor does the code ask for?

no one can give me the answer or fix this issue here, even our database host say i have remote permissions and all should work.

Thanks

>>> they have stated that they dont have a table called 'tables'

The better question is what is causing your app to access table 'tables'.  If the CMS does not include or use it, you need to find out what is.

In the meantime, use 'SHOW GRANTS' to see what users and permissions have been set up.  You can use the same syntax to add grants for a specific user/host.  See here for the full syntax:
