    Question Help setting up a new root password for MySQL!

    Hi guys! I'm trying to set up a new root password for MySQL, but I think something is not right. I'm getting this

    C:\mysql\bin> mysqladmin -u root password "your new password"
    mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'

    What OS are you running? If you haven't set up MySQL as a service yet, it isn't going to be "on," and therefore, you won't be able to talk to it.

    Hi Matt! when I press Ctrl-Alt-Del and open the Task List MySQL is listed on the Processes Tab. Does it mean that is running? I'm running win2000
