MySQL Connection in Example project

Hello! I opened the MySQL demo project to test a connection to my DB. The only things I changed are the connection credentials and added the Port line. However I keep getting the error in the below photo.

Is “” related to the Xojo in the error? I thought it would be my host (‘root’@‘45…’)

I copy and pasted the credentials directly from a working VB project so I know the password is typed correctly.

I am on the latest version on Windows 10.


Are you sure you could login with root?

Also root may be limited to localhost only, so no outside access.

Hi Christian,

That is probably the case. I just created a new user with access and works fine now.

Thank you!
