Mysql Refusing my Connection on a new install
Just installed LAMP following the instructions, I uploaded my code which was working perfecty locally and I got an Error500. Checked the apache logs and getting:
[Tue Apr 17 16:26:54.072762 2018] [:error] [pid 15636] [client 188.8.131.52:50286] PHP Warning: mysqli_connect(): (HY000/2002): Connection refused in /var/www/mywebsite.com/public_html/dbconnection.php on line 7, referer: http:/mywebsite.com/
My dbconnection file is:
<?php //Establishing connection with the database define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); define('DB_USERNAME', 'root'); define('DB_PASSWORD', 'mypassword'); define('DB_DATABASE', 'mydbname'); //where customers is the database $db = mysqli_connect(DB_SERVER,DB_USERNAME,DB_PASSWORD,DB_DATABASE); ?>
Data is correct since I used it to access phpmyadmin.
What else could this be?
