Please I will appreciate any help with this error. I am trying to connect to a Mysql 5.0 database with Java using mysql connector/j3.1. I have been trying to fix it without success. Below is the error I am getting.

java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'mysql'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

First thing that i can tell is about your username and password.
double check the user name and pasword you used to create the connection ,
either using connection url or setting them seprately.

also check that server is running on the port you used to connect to it.
