ASP.NET app trying to access data in a MySql db hosted on GoDaddy.  When running the query I get this message...

"Access denied for user 'myapp'@'xx.xxx.217.88' (using password: YES)"

Any idea why?  Here's the connection string in the web.config...
        <remove name="connectstring" />
        <add name="connectstring" connectionString="User Id=myapp;Password=mypwd;Host=myapp.db.2416160.hostedresource.com;Persist Security Info=True;Connection Timeout=120;Default Command Timeout=120;" providerName="Devart.Data.MySql"/>

Wrong username or password, or the MySQL server has no user that matches that host. Verify with GoDaddy that you have the right password.

You're right.  It was the wrong host.  It's misleading because they keep showing you a "host" on the screen, but when I connected with MySql it showed me the "Host" and "Network Name".  It was the NETWORK NAME that I had to use in my web.config connection string.  I hope this helps people in the future.
