    phpmyadmin?

    have you installed phpmyadmin and just set it up for root permissions on the local machine, is this possible? it's EASY !! =]... and make sure to STOP the server and then START the server... i was playing around with permissions, and would only RESTART the server and couldn't figure out WHAT was wrong. then I stop and start and all is well... my permission settings were taken in.. probably caches permissions in memory or something. Anyways, post more detailed info.. Did you add the user and make sure to add the right host you connect from or use '%' for any host?
