No matter what I did, I kept getting a "not authorized ..." error
After a few hours of beating my head against the wall, I deleted the database, and this time created the database and table with phpmyadmin. The thing worked the first try.
Can someone please expain this to me, and whether the database set up with phpmyadmin (it has no password or priviledges set)is a security risk.
I really don't understand the passwords and priviledges issues of databases.
If your hosting accounts user name is: fred
and the database user's name is: foo
the actual database user name might be: fred_foo
It's not always readily apparent that this is the case.
