Who else but my buddy Trevor :) Thnx a lot for all the help last time.
Ok now I got rid of the previous problem, but now I have another one.
I get this error:
Warning: Host 'boca02.u.washington.edu' is not allowed to connect to this
MySQL server in /nfs/guido06/dw01/d82/dejann/install/newtables.php on line 2
Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Host 'boca02.u.washington.edu' is not
allowed to connect to this MySQL server in
/nfs/guido06/dw01/d82/dejann/install/newtables.php on line 2
so what I did is i went and did this in mysql db:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES on *.* to username@*.u.washington.edu;
I know that this is insecure, but I was intending on keeping it like this
just till i found a problem. But even after this I'm still getting the same
error even apparently user username has access to any db from any host at
