Hi there

I am using the script “flippa clone” and trying to connect to my server’s database, however I keep getting a message “access not allowed”
I can log to cPanel  normally but I just can’t connect the database.
Does anyone know to fix this?
Please advice

If you have the script  and your mysql account on the same server then you should use "localhost" for the location of mysql
If  mysql is located on another server, then check with your host for the right path .

I think you have something wrong with your input. Make sure you have the right settings
Check the following
Mysql host : localhost  or (127.0.0.1)
Database Name : < database name>
User : < username >
Password : <password>
