What causes 'access denied for user' in sql?


While trying to connect to the database:

Access denied for user 'john'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

You're facing a permission issue while trying to access the database.


Ensure that the username and password are correct, and that the user has the appropriate permissions to access the database. Consult with the database administrator if necessary.

-- Not an SQL solution, but you might need to check user permissions or reset the password.
