[SOLVED] ER_ACCESS_DENIED_ERROR: Access denied for user ''@'localhost' (using password: NO)


I have this problem, I already researched and I could not solve it, I imagine it has something to do with database permissions, but I can not fix it:

if (error) throw error;

—- EDIT —–

my env.default file:



so this my db.js file:

 var mysql = require('mysql')
  var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host: process.env.DB_HOST,
  user: process.env.DB_USER,
  password: process.env.DB_PASSWORD,
  database : process.env.DB_NAME,
  sockertPath: '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'


 connection.query('SELECT 1 + 1 AS solution',
 function (error, results, fields) {
if (error) throw error;
console.log('The solution is: ', results[0].

 module.exports = connection;


You must create a MySQL user specifically to access the app. Create a user and set a password (do not leave the password null). Do not forget to give this user permission to be able to access the database and tables of app. I hope I have helped.
