How to resolve error "LOAD DATA INFILE is terminated with #1045 Access denied" error in cPanel server?

MySQL has the ability to import data from external files such as CSV, Excel or even SQLite databases into tables. The LOAD DATA INFILE statement allows you to load large amounts of data into tables without running multiple queries.

Load Data INFILE (LOAD DATA) statements allow you to copy data from remote sources into local database tables. This technique can be very useful when importing massive amounts of data from external sources such as flat files, spreadsheets, XML documents, etc.

However, sometimes this command fails due to common errors. If you get the error message "Error Code: 1045. Access denied for user 'user'@'localhost'", then you probably need to grant access to the file to the user who owns the table.

Error 1045 occurs when the MySQL server encounters an unexpected condition while loading data from a file. In general, this means either that the database was not closed properly after being opened or that the user does not have sufficient permissions to access the specified file.

The latter case is particularly likely if the file name or password includes spaces or special characters.

To resolve the problem, check whether the user has proper permission to read the specified file. If the file is located outside the MySQL installation directory, make sure that the user has appropriate privileges. If necessary, run the GRANT statement in the mysql client program.

To fix the error "LOAD DATA INFILE is terminated with #1045 Access denied" in WHM/cPanel server, check the below points.
In cPanel, check the following:

1. The database username cpaneluser_database name exists with the DB_User_Password database you want to connect to exists.

2. The user cpanelusername_database can connect to the database with the required permission.

3. The user is allowed to connect from localhost.

In WHM, reset the MySQL root user password for your account, and it may be enough for you to resolve this issue.
