    Unanswered: Starting trouble

    Hi guys

    I am an absolute newbie here.
    I just installed mysql-4.0.21 on my windows 2000 professional system, and here is what I came face to face with -
    1) when i give the following command at the command prompt, the system hangs indefinitely
    mysqld --standalone

    2) when i later abort the above command and try giving the command
    mysqladmin create testDB
    It gives me the following error -
    mysqladmin: CREATE DATABASE failed; error: 'Access denied for user: '@localhost' to database 'testdb''

    Please help me solve this.
    Looking forward for an early reply.

    Thanks

    Suhaib

    mysqld is a server process and it must run always so do not close this process if you want to connect to server...
