#1044 – Access denied for user ‘username1’@’localhost’ to database ‘wrdp9

#1044 – Access denied for user ‘username1’@’localhost’ to database ‘wrdp9 and #1044 – Access denied for user ‘username1’@’localhost’ to database ‘user2_wrdp9’   is a very popular error that’s found among most the popluar web hosting like –godaddy, hostgator 


the main reason why you getting 1044 access denied for user to database phpmyadmin  when importing an sql file to a database via phpMyAdmin is because of “The username of the SQL  do not match of that for the Username of you Database(host)”

I heard people complaining – They are exporting an SQL database from another host, then import it to their new host database via phpmyadmin and getting this error” #1044 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' to database 'information_schema'"


How to fix #1044 – Access denied for user

In this case i am transferring database SQL from IPage to Godady

>Login to your host where you are exporting the Databse SQL from (IPAGE)

>Export your database.Make sure to check -Enclose Export in a transaction

#1044 - Access denied for user 'username1'@'localhost' to database 'wrdp9

>Save as NONE, and press go



>Locate the username of that Database from where you exporting the SQL From (IPAGE)

  • (pncvuEsiE6a) is mines

>Now, move over to your next host where you want to import the SQl database

>IMPORTANT- Create a new database with the same username  as your SQL Exported Database..In this case i will be using -pncvuEsiE6a

#1044 - Access denied for user 'username1'@'localhost' to database 'wrdp9


You can see here i do not get the -#1044 – Access denied for user ‘username1’@’localhost’ to database ‘wrdp9 error  because i have matched the Godday database username with my Ipgae Exported SQL Database

Few people suggest manually editing the SQL file to alter the username to match the created database on the sever..But that can cause some error,only do if you have expertise in SQL.
