I've been configuring Icehouse Keystone to use Apache/mod_wsgi, following the various guides that are around, including on the OpenStack wiki. That appears to be working, but I'm now seeing a weird MySQL error when I issue Keystone queries. It's a MySQL 1045 Access Denied message, but the odd thing is that the error is:

2014-06-27 18:26:16.930 8113 TRACE keystone.common.wsgi OperationalError: (OperationalError) (1045, "Access denied for user 'keystone'@'localhost' (using password: YES)") None None

but the user configured in /etc/keystone/keystone.conf is 'keystone_admin' (as setup in the original RDO installation):

connection = mysql://keystone_admin:<password>@<IP address>/keystone

I've added a 'keystone' MySQL account with the same privileges and credentials as the 'keystone_admin' one and the error is still there.

Edit the question and specify more clearly how you installed keystone so people can find the root cause. The problem seems to be simply the wrong mysql credentials.

In the end this seemed to be caused by the need to create a separate keystone-paste.ini file, even though all those settings were inside keystone.conf. As I said earlier, the credentials were correct. The error message was rather misleading.

I do still have problems with Keystone, but I'll submit a different question for those.

What exactly needs to go into the keystone-paste.ini file?
