Sql.safe mode Errors
If you have any mysql connection errors and received error with cpanel user name authentication errors. If sql.safe_mode is enabled, mysql_connect() and mysql_pconnect() ignore any arguments passed to them. Instead, PHP attempts to connect using the following details:
host: local host
user: the user PHP runs as
password: an empty string (“”)
Notice: SQL safe mode in effect – ignoring host/user/password information in
mysql_connect(): SQL safe mode in effect – ignoring host/user/password information in
This is caused due to your php.ini sql safe mode settings.
Login your php.ini file.
and turn off sql.safe mode.
sql.safe_mode = Off
