Connect Failed Access denied

Hi all,

Im running RT 3.4.2 on Apache 1.3.31 with mod_perl 1.29 and MySQL
4.1.12. Anyway, Ive just about got everything going but ive run into
a snag with trying to connect to the database. I continuously get the
error below

[Wed Jul 6 11:32:05 2005] [error] Connect Failed Access denied for
user ‘rt_user’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)\n at
/www/rt/lib/RT.pm line 168\n

Ive tried setting mysql to use old passwords to no avail. Any help
would be much appreciated.

I added the --old-passwords option to mysql.server startup script and
that took care of it, as an fyi.

I’m using Oracle.

Have you created any user account that works (besides the default root account)? If so, what type of account is/are they (priviledged or non-priviledged)?

hrmm… i created a test acount which is setup the same as rt_user and
got the same effects from command line. If it’s a mysql problem,
would you be able to point me in the right direction maybe? Thanks.

Note: RT creates 3 user accounts (RT_System, nobody, root) when you initial the db. You can only use the root account to login and create other user accounts.

Login as root, then create a test user account, then try logging in as the test user.

Yes. I get the same error when I log in from command. I can log in
as root, but when I try it using rt_user rt_pass i get access denied
rt_user@localhost

Thanks.

Have you tried logging into the db from command line directly?
