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

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.
