    Mysql Administration


    Hello, I have noticed that I have mysql already installed and I can connect to it via Mysql control center using any sort of user name without a password. When I go to try to create an sql user account it wont let me because I dont have the right permissions. Any ideas on where I can administer to the server and create a user?

    P.S. I go in under root without a password and it lets me in but I have the same permission trouble.

    can you paste the entire output, including what you type and what error message you get? remember you will need to actually specifiy you are connecting as the root user, just being logged in as root in your bash shell may not be enough.

    Code:
    mysql -h localhost -u root
