Rt-users digest, Vol 1 #883 - 15 msgs


If it was a password error I would be either be getting asked for a
password or I would get a bad password response.

I not only flushed the privileges but I also restarted mysql.On Mon, 2002-11-18 at 14:30, rt-users-request@lists.fsck.com wrote:

Unfortunately I seem to have encountered another problem;

shell> mysql -h helpdesk.corp.newoppinc.org -u root
ERROR 1130: Host ‘helpdesk.corp.newoppinc.org’ is not allowed to
connect to this MySQL server

No password?

But wait, you say! That’s easy to fix, you need to allow the other
host to connect to the database! – Ah, but alas, I have done that.
Allowed hosts is set to % and allowed db’s is also set to %.

If you modified the grant tables with “UPDATE users SET …” then you
also need to FLUSH PRIVILEGES.
