    Unanswered: Access Denied

    I am following the manual's instruction on how to get MySQL running on Windows. It tells me to delete the anonymous user and then create a password for the root user. I did that. Then, it says to shutdown the server with the root user and new password and I get

    Code:
    MYSQLADMIN: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@127.0.0.1' (Using password: YES)'
    Did I do something wrong? Thanks, Jeremy

    I don't know what's the manual says !!

    but the default is :
    username : root
    password : "" ( nothing )...

    that should work if you didn't change any thing..
