Hello gagain all.

I have a problem with MySQL.

I posetd it here becuase I am using an Apache server hehe.

With my problem, I have defined my MySQL Username and password in my.ini, and started MySQL.

But for some reason, I keep getting the error \"Access denied for user admin@localhost (using password: YES)\"

Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Thanks. ;-)

It may sound stupid, but is their really an admin@localhost user defined? (Usually you would use root@.. as your administrative user, not that you should use it for anything other than administration.)

Also, are you sure that user admin@localhost has been identified with a password, and that you are typing the correct password in?

It's a common problem that seems to trip me up all too often. You're not alone!
