Sorry. The error displayed is:

*Warning*: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect <http://localhost/wservices/function.mysql-connect>]: Access denied for user '<user>'@'' (using password: YES) in */Library/WebServer/Documents/wservices/connect.php* on line *29*

(But with the real user name, not just '<user>')

I know this has probably been answered already.

When I pass a user name and password from a form to my PHP script and then
pass those to mysql_connect it doesn't connect. When I paste those exact
same values into mysql_connect as string literals it works.

Can anyone tell me why this happens?

I know the strings are identical to the literals I try in a test but they
don't work when submitted via form.

$form_user = $_POST[ 'user' ];
$form_pass = $_POST[ 'password' ];

# Connect to remote DB

$LINK = mysql_connect( $host, $form_user, $form_pass );

Please show the error you are getting from the mysql_connect

And yes, my $host param is correct.
