[users@httpd] apache/mysql errors....

P: n/a


We have the following setup in our httpd.conf file. We've tried to give
what's related to the issue. We're trying to set up a virtual host for a
test project. The behavior that we're seeing is that we can type: but the url that gets displayed is

http://12.x.x.x where 12.x.x.x is the address of the external router

( is the internal IP of the Internal machine. The machine is behind a
linksys router.)

We're not sure why we're getting the 12.x.x.x from the server/app....
We'd like to have the app display the

The following information is from the httpd.conf file:

Listen 80
UseCanonicalName on
# added the namevirtualhost (b douglas)
#NameVirtualHost 12.x.x.x:80
# Virtual hosts
#bdouglas this was commented out...

Any help/assistance/pointers would be greatly appreciated....




A mysql/Apache issue:

I get the following when I'm trying to run a test web site on an Apache
2.0/RH8.0 setup.

Warning: Access denied for user: 'apache@localhost' (Using password: YES) in
/var/www/html/dbid/mysql/database.php on line 17

Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Access denied for user: 'apache@localhost'
(Using password: YES) in /var/www/html/dbid/mysql/database.php on line 17
Could not connect: Access denied for user: 'apache@localhost' (Using
password: YES)

I have added the mysql user/password to the php file. I can access mysql
using the user/password from the linux command line.

However, when I check mysql, I don't have an Apache user defined in the user
table. Do I need to have one defined, or should the php app utilize the
user/passwd/dbname that I provide in the db_connect function?

I can access the phpMyAdmin application with no apparent issues/problems...

A check of google indicates that the issue seems to be related to not having
mysql setup for an Apache user....

As an additional question, if I have a web app that has a mysql db, do I
need to allow Apache to have access to each table that the app uses...?????

Any help/assitance/pointers to resolve this would be greatle appreciated...
