I made a backup of the Magento website including the mysql. Now when I try to access the page I get a message saying "a:4:{i:0;s:95:"SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user " 'minxny_dbadmi'@'localhost' (using password: YES)";i:1;s:2950:"#0 /home/minxny/public_html/lib/Zend/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php(111): Zend_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Abstract->_connect()"

However I edited the local.xml file with the updated servers mysql info which has the database mysql username as minxny_dnadmi

and still for some reason its looking for the incorrect username. IDK where its getting the mysql username minxny_dbadmi when I have something totally different in the local.xml

  • check user permission Commented Aug 6, 2016 at 5:13
  • The issue is that the username minxny_dbadmi idk where it is getting that because I have a different database username in the local.xml file in app/etc folder. Is there anywhere else I need to edit the database connection info. I am not sure where its getting that username from.

If you are sure you have updated the xml with the correct details the issue must be with the database setup itself and user permissions.

Perhaps test to see if you can connect to the MySQL server via a standalone script (should be like 2 lines of code)


Make sure there is no backup file created in parallel to local.xml. And try to clear all cache types and cache storage.

  • OK so now I got the site sort of working in that I took the contents of app/etc/local.xml and copy and pasted that into a new file. I then deleted the local.xml and saved the new file as local.xml. No my issue is when I go to the site none of the images css seem to load. Also when I try to go to the admin also no images or css or even the submit button to login does not load and I have no idea why> The site is bit.ly/2aDbypp any suggestions to fix this?

  • to check static content loading issue, open firebug and reload the page. Now check console or net panel for broken link and check whether url is correct or not. Commented Aug 7, 2016 at 8:27
  • if you are getting blank page then you have to check for error log in magento or check server error log. Also you can check by enabling display_errors in index.php . Commented Aug 7, 2016 at 17:35
