I asked this question before and get the answer, but I don't have enough information to follow the instructions.

Here is the link to the previous question:
http://www.webhostinghub.com/support/community-support/wordpress/chinese-words-turn-into

I was told to refer to this article:
http://www.webhostinghub.com/support/website/databases/convert-database-to-utf-8

I'm new to this whole system so I'm not sure how to apply the script. I tried to create a php file using the script and upload it to my ftp site, and run the php file through the web browser. But I got the following message:


Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'ryanwa5_wrdp2'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /home/ryanwa5/public_html/sample/utf.php on line 12
Access denied for user 'ryanwa5_wrdp2'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I guess I need to specify the server name instead of localhost alias? How can I find out my localhost?

Besides, is there a tutorial that I can follow to go through the main use cases of all the services and functions?

Hello BigRyan,

If you run the script within your browser using PHPmyadmin, then you're running the script on the localhost. If running a client directly on your computer and NOT on the server, then you need to define the actual mySQL host - which would be your domain name, but it needs have a valid user name attached, AND you would need to go to Cpanel and setup a remote MYSQL setting in order to get past the firewall.

Make sure that the user name and password are defined correctly. It appears that one of those settings are incorrect. If you want to name the server directly, you should be able to simply use the domain name (or you can try ehub31.webhostinghub.com). There is unfortunately no tutorial for main use cases for all services and functions.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Regards,

Arnel C.
