    all you have to do is the create a database,user with password... Do it with a terminal as root..

    Code:
    mysqladmin create yourdatabasename
    Logg on as root

    Code:
    mysql -A yourdatabasename
    create and grant the user

    Code:
    grant all on yuordatabasename.* to youruser@localhost identified by 'yourpassword';
    The try to connect as the user you have created

    Code:
    mysql -A youradtabasename -u youruser -p
    and then enter your password....DONE!
