when using $wpdb sudden connection rejection without changing anything. Access denied
WP version 5.5.3 – updated days ago php version 7.3.24 running locally on server Can not create a backup using duplicator Occours bothi inside WP admin pages, so internal connections and external through php requests
I am suddenly receiving the following error but have not made any changes to any file on the server, nor within wp itself –
WordPress database error: [Access denied for user ‘database-name’@’localhost’ (using password: YES)] .
THIGNS I HAVE DONE TO FIX – I have verified the wpconfig password and the db password match. I actually re-updated the db by copying the password listed in the wpconfig file and pasting it to the db. Searched a lot of solutions on here checked that the db is up and running by logging in using MYPHPADMIN
What am I missing and how do I get to the root of the issue that is causing this? No console errors are shown.
