    hmmmm, ok

    it seems as though it's not picking up the username, since it says

    [quote]'Access denied for user: '@localhost'[/qupte]

    Should say "root@localhost" or something like that.... try:

    Code:
    mysqladmin -uroot password 'whatever'
    "I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"
    Registered Linux user = #372327
