Access Denied for Database although credentials are correct

As I was following this tutorial,

Everything is perfectly done except the database connection. During deploy, at migrate stage, it seems the env credentials provided is not able to establish a connection with the server itself.

  • Laravel 8
  • MySQL 8
  • PHP 7.4
  • Ubuntu 20 These are the specs

Hi @risingsoul1991,

Can you try using the following command to see if you would be able to connect to the database :

mysql -u laravel_db_user -p laravel_db -h localhost

You’ll need to change laravel_db_user and laravel_db with the actual information of course.

If it doesn’t work, most probably your password is not correct. To change it, you can use the following

ALTER USER 'laravel_db_user '@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'New-Password-Here';
