I'm using XAMPP. MySQL batabase is now deactivated. I don't know why. It was OK a couple of days ago. I can't start mysql using CMD. got an error message saying ERROR 1045 <28000>: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' <using password: NO>

Does anyone know what does this happen and how to solve it?

Thanx in advance.

Not sure... but no password?
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

Looks like you are either using the incorrect username/password combo - XAMPP default is root for the username and no password is set. Also start mysql via the XAMPP control panel, or goto Start -> Run -> services.msc

Scroll down the list of services, look for MySQL. Right click it and select Start, if it isnt already. Also make sure the start up type is set to Automatic too, within the properties window (Right click -> Properties)
