hi,

i have currently got MySQL 5.1 and Apache 2.2 running PHP 5.0 on Win XP machine.

I am having problems trying to get PHP to connect to MySQL as I everytime I try to connect to MySQL i get the error below. I have been tryign to connect with 'root' and I have set a new password for root but it keeps stating access denied for SYSTEM.

SQL safe mode in effect - ignoring host/user/password information

Access denied for user 'SYSTEM'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

i believe that there must be someone to do with MYSQL?

Cheers

This articel is gold. ...and a good read, regading debugging. have you run PHP on this server before, if so this may not be that big a help. but it's worth taking a look at.

Can you post your PHP code which you are using to connect MySQL server..

This error Access denied for user 'SYSTEM'@'localhost' (using password: NO)  tells that you are trying to connect MySQL serevr with user "SYSTEM" and without password....

if you haven't touched your MySQL installation then  you can connect MySQL server with user 'root' and no password..

i have changed the root password as soon in the code below. I have only just installed and tried to set the code below.


<?php $connection=mysql_connect("localhost","root","MyPass")
or die("Could not connect to MySQL");
echo "Successfully connected to MySQL";
?>

I found that the problem was that I had sql.safe_mode on and I switch it off and it worked.
