    Problems reinstalling mySql

    Hi all. I have problems reinstalling mySql. Two days ago I started to get problems setting up Datasources. The error stated that the connection to the database server had failed. When I tried to login in mySql I couldn't any longer so I decided to start from scratch but every time It doesn't pass the security settings. I get a 1045 error ("error nr. 1045 access denied for user@localhost (using password: no)") I have turned off the Windows Firewall temporary but that didn't do anything. What should I do to solve this?

    I use Coldfusion as my develping platform

    See the manual for RESET ROOT PASSWORD it will tell you how to start mysql without the user table being referred to.
    You can then edit the info for the Root user and restart normally. Then log in with Root and fix any other issues.
