MySQLi is not working.
If the PHP version is PHP 5.2+ or higher, MySQLi will work without any problems.Keywords: mysqli
Common problems with MySQLi are incorrect connection setting such as user_name, datebase_name and password.
The error is as follows for these types:
Warning: mysqli_real_connect() [function.mysqli-real-connect]: (28000/1045): Access denied for user 'username_name'@'localhost' (using password: YES/NO) Couldn't connect : localhost: Connection error to server 'localhost' with user 'username_user'
The fastest fix is to look at the error and read it. For example, if "(using password: NO)", then you need to make sure your connection is using a password.
If "(using password: YES)", then make sure you are using the correct password.
If the error reportsCouldn't connect : localhost: Connection error to server 'localhost' with user 'username_user'Make sure you have added the user to the database and granted permissions to this user.
