Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'dzongkha'@'jomolhari.druknet.bt' (using password: YES) in/home/dzongkha/public_html/online/config.php on line 2What's going on here? DDC's web server cannot access the back-end database. But in the process, it prints diagnostics ("Access denied for user ...") which I, as a user, should not see.
