I've used MySQLdb in the past without any problems, but I'm having trouble
with a new project I'm setting up. I can connect to the (newly created)
database with the mysql utility, but if I try to connect via MySQLdb.connect,
it raises an OperationalError exception (1045, access denied). I've triple-
checked the host, username, password, and database name. This is really
driving me up the wall. Has anyone else had this problem?
