My last post disappeared...
1. Make the database nukes available to user nukes from anywhere (%)
read the MySQL docs if you don't know how.
2. Make sure your password is eight characters long.
Post if that helps..
Stuck on that for hours.
The password MUST be 8 characters long...
The prepare.ddl sql commands threw syntax errors from mysql. I just deleted the nukes entry it put in mysql.user like this:
mysql> delete from mysql.user where User='nukes';
and then ran a simple grant statement:
mysql> grant all on nukes.* to nukes@localhost identified by "password";
