MySQL User and Password problems

Recommended Posts

I am new to the PHP/MySQL world, but I am a quick learner. I have PHP, Apache and MySQL all running on windows XP, I have tested them all, and they are running properly. The problem is, when I try to do something with MySQL that requires a user name and password, it is not allowing me access. I tried root, and names that I created, and user info for admin on XP. Nothing works. I tried using command line (dos) and the the MySQL Admin for Windows-it logs on but will not allow me to create new Databases.

 

Can anyone help please!

Hi,

 

Try checking the previlages that you have given the default user name is \"root\" password is blank. If you still have issues then you can flush the privelages. I would recommend you SQLYOG (www.sqlyog.com) a GUI tool whcih can be handy. It has easy interface to flush privelages and add ne users.

 

Also select \"mysql\" database and check the user table to see the persmission given.
