mySQL connection error
So I've installed mySQL on my XP box. So I created myself a user account and password and so I try connecting to my server.
And so I receive the following very clear error.
db = MySQLdb.connect(host="localhost", user="solarbear", passwd="mypassword",db="mydb")
No need to tell you that my user name and password have both been checked thoroughly. Still, I can't seem to connect to it, even though I'm prefectly able to operate in command line.
What could cause this error ?
