Hi there @riyastp04,

Are you using the correct password for your connection string in your website configuration file?

Did you get any errors when you ran the CREATE USER query:

CREATE USER 'example_user'@'%' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'password';

Also, did you run the grant privileges query too:

GRANT ALL ON example_database.* TO 'example_user'@'%';

Regards, Bobby
