    MySQL Installation Help PLEASE!

    Dear All,

    I just Mr. Yank's book on PHP and MySQL. I have followed all of his installation steps, but when I try to log into MySQL with the command prmopt to set a default password. I get this error:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6001]
    Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\Users\Lane>mysql -u root mysql
    ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: N0)



    Please Help!

    looks like you set one up when you installed (otherwise it would let you in without the error).

    if you don't remember the password you used then search the manaul for RESET ROOT PASSWORD

    if you remember it of course then run mysql -u root -ppassword
