Sorry. The error displayed is:
*Warning*: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect
<http://localhost/wservices/function.mysql-connect>]: Access denied for
user '<user>'@'ip70-162-142-180.ph.ph.cox.net' (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.
