Topic "Connecting to database"

Author Message


Not sure if I am in the right forum for this.

I am currently running my mediawiki pages on my localhost and am trying to move it a server using WinSCP. The problem which I am having is during the installation of mediawiki on the server, I cannot connect to the database (mysql). The error message which I get is
DB connection error: Access denied for user 'xxxx'@'localhost' (using password: YES) (localhost).
Check the host, username and password and try again.

My question is, is it possible to connect to the database from winSCP? If so, how can I do it?
