View Full Version : More problems with MySql!!

10-15-2006, 02:05 AM
Okay. I stopped trying to get a database working for about a month now, and only recently I've been trying to do it again. It will not let me log in!!

This is what I type into my command line (running on windows):

C:\Program Files\MySql\MySql Server 5.0\bin\mysqld
C:\Program Files\MySql\MySql Server 5.0\bin\mysql -h localhost -u **** -p

then it asks me for my password, so I type it in.
Then, poof! "Access is denied for user '...'


Sorry about that :)

If you are working in Windows platform, why don't you try XAMPP (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html).

I've been using it for sometime found very user-friendly. The main point is to start the Apache and MySQL you don't have to issue commands rather you can press two button and that'll start them.

XAMPP has PHPMyAdmin using which you can handle your database(s) in a better manner.
