I would really appreciate your help to fix this problem.
I have a wp site with some credential (DB, USERNAME, PWS) and it work fine.
However if I try to create a connection to the db myself, using the same credential the connection doesn't work and i get this error:
Database connection failed: Access denied for user 'my_user'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I have also tried to create a new db and a new user but it seems have the same problems.
From my php panel I have associated te user to the db grant all privileges.
Thanks a lot
1. You should open database once more while closing all the windows of your system and login username and password .
2. Go to tools and cross check if the database is in connected mode or disconnected mode.
3. One more think use windows authentication true for SQL server .
