Access Denied Error

Recommended Posts

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
