Here’s the simplest test-page I can think of that will test …
– the supplied credentials
– PHP can connect to MySQL
– Apache can display the results

<?php
@mysql_connect(“localhost”,”root”,”[password]”);
$result = mysql_query(“show databases”);
echo “<h1>Databases this user can connect to …</h1>”;
while ($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)) echo($row[“Database”].”<br />”);
?>

Paste it into a file called ‘test.php’ (with the correct password) in Apache’s ‘htdocs’ folder, then browse ‘http://localhost/test.php&#8217;.
