Getting an error of Unknown “MySQL server host ‘hostname’ (0) (DataObjects::SQLError)”. Anyone have an answer to this problem? And if yes, what are the steps to go about fixing it.

It’s tough to say for certain without more information but the error message seems to indicate that your connection settings have the hostname of your MySQL server set as ‘hostname’. If it’s the local server you can set it as localhost, otherwise it should be the IP address of your MySQL server.

Found the problem I didn’t grant the user privilege.
