I have the whole setup working for months on my local computer.
I’m installing on a remote site now.
Created a fresh mysql DB, and created a new user (“someuser”) and gave it complete grants, like so –
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON .
TO ‘someuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘somepassword’ WITH GRANT OPTION;
I have sync’d the db, using “python manage.py syncdb” and the correct tables were created. My settings.py has this same user.
But when I try to login a user through the application, and it hits the DB, I see the following in the logs –
(1045, "Access denied for user 'someuser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)")
I logged in through mysql (installed on the same box as django) and checked the grants and it correctly shows –
Grants for[email protected]
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO ‘someuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY PASSWORD ‘*thesaltedpasswordOverHere’ WITH GRANT OPTION
I don’t want to use the root user/password for django, since it doesn’t seem the correct way.
Any pointers as to what might be wrong ?
I do it like this for a database named foo_db:
create database foo_db; create user foo_user identified by 'foo_password'; grant all on foo_db.* to 'foo_user'@'%'; flush privileges;
