I installed local (5.7.4+4786) and created a new website. When I click on “Admin” or “View Site”, I get the same error message in my browser:
“<���ÿjHost ‘::1’ is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server”
If no one has any suggestion on how to deal with this, can someone direct me to troubleshooting guides? I haven’t found anything to help me figure out why it is not connecting to the MySQL server, or how to fix it.
Before I answer your questions, I want to state that I tried one more time today to load it… and, it worked! However, I am going to answer your questions in case it helps with some debugging.
I am on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6. The browser I am using is Firefox 81.0 (It looks like it just updated, so perhaps that has some bearing).
I did create a couple other test sites, and they seemed to work fine. The one that I was planning to use for actual development and taking live was the one that didn’t work. (I wanted to continue using it, since it had the name of my domain.) I tried to delete it, but could not determine how to do that.
There are no special characters in my user name.
I did not post the log, since it seems to be working. However, if it might be valuable for debugging, etc., I’m happy to forward it, or post it.
