mySql don't run

Recommended Posts

I install mySql in XP Professional machine and I define Password but not USER. I undertand that I can use root like user but when I try, for example, to run

[b]mySql> mysql -u root [/b] (or other command), I receive this error.

[b]Access denied for user 'root'@' localhost <using password:NO>[/b]

It has not been possible to obtain that mySql runs. I install acording with rules in PHP manual but...nothing!!

Can you help me?

Thanks in advanced because is urgent for me

Looks like you have a password set for the root user. add the -p command at the end of the command
mysql> mysql -u root -p

No hit enter. MySQL will promt for a password. Enter the password in after hit enter. If its correct it'll log you in and show the MySQL Command Line.
