Greetings All,

I just setup Apache 1.3, PHP 4.3.4 and Mysql 3.23.57.. now I am trying to create a database along with a username and password..

C:mysqlbin>mysqladmin -uroot -pbiscuit create datahome

mysqladmin: connect to server at \'localhost\' failed
error: \'Access denied for user: \'root@localhost\' (Using password: YES)\'

Why is my access denied? I haven`t done anything other than just install mysql,apache & php. can someone help me with this problem?
I am abit new..

Oh I am running WinXP Pro
Thanks in advance
