I have what has been a running django application. When I visited my site this afternoon I received this message:

OperationalError at /

(1045, "Access denied for user 'xxxxx'@'2604:9a00:2010:a004:c::2' (using password: YES)")

I can connect to the database via the control panel and the password has not changed. I am running on Web328.

Does anyone have an ideas?

We recently activated IPv6 on your server, and this is a side-effect of that. To get around the problem, please change your database settings to use localhost instead of your server's canonical hostname, eg...

'HOST': 'localhost',

... and the restart your Apache.

Hope that helps!
