I am a novice user and have been using a Turnkey LAMP appliance on VirtualBox on Win7. For a change I thought I'd try Bitnami LAMP for VirtualBox. As a novice I have found this to be a painful experience. I have connected to the Web server and uploaded my PHP files, they run but obviously they didn't have a database connection. I then connected to MyPHPadmin and created a database. I then imported the SQL tables and views successfully. I then changed the connection information in my PHP files. However when I connected to my website I got the following message:
"Connection failed: Host '127.0.0.1' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server". I have looked for clues in the documentation, and forums and can find no clues to help me move forward.
