Perhaps you didn't specify the correct password. You don't say
how you set up the password initially, but if you inserted it into
the user table without using PASSWORD(), access will be denied.

That's because you didn't ask for a prompt. Specify -p
or --password on the command line with no password immediately
following it, and mysql will prompt you for one.
