PHP doesn't send the username and password. -->MySQL Connection Failed:

nano maus, idban secandri, Alius A, Onno Benschop,

U have to make sure that ur rights have been set right in the DB ur are 
trying to access, if u havent got the rights to acces it, then it u get 
exactly that same error msg, so if u know the password and login name 
is right, check overall user-access rights in the mysql-DB. Once uve 
edited that dont forget to restart mysql to initiate the changes.
otherwise try putting this code in an include file that u include at 
the top of ur php file:
function connect_to() {
  $mysqluser="<yourusernamehere>";      // username
  $mysqlpasswd="<yourpasswordhere>";    // password
  $mysqlhost="<yourmysqlserverhere>";      // name of computer MySQL is 
  $connID = @mysql_pconnect($mysqlhost, $mysqluser, $mysqlpasswd);
  if ($connID) {
       return $connID;
  else {
    echo "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN\">
          <title>Sorry, no connection ...</title>
          <body><p>Sorry, no connection to database ...</body>
    exit();                        // quit PHP interpreter
u include it simply by putting:
at the top of ur php pages and just call the function by using
$connID = connect_to(); 
works for me.... but if it still dont work... as i said check access 
hope it helped
