hi I'm new to PHP. I use WAMP server and tried to connect MYSQL database

I create form which contain 4 text feilds


Phone Number:



mysql database:test
table: reload_menu
id is set to ubsigned and autoincrement
here is source code for update.php


$Pnumber =$_POST['txt_phone'];
$Reload =$POST['txt_reload'];
$Vendor =$POST['txt_vendor'];

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","abc","123");
if (!$con)
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("test", $con);

$sql="INSERT INTO reload_menu (id, phonenumber, reload, vendor)

if (!mysql_query($sql,$con))
die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
echo "1 record added";



when I'm trying to insert record to table using form following error appears.

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'maxtalker'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in C:wampwwwoneupdate.php on line 8
Could not connect: Access denied for user 'maxtalker'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Can anyone tell me whats the wrong with my code?
