Subject:Re: Can't connect as non-root user to database
View as plain text  
you probably have the anonymous user account taking over:   ''@'localhost'

when you specify the host with -h you are actually forcing MySQL to use
TCP/IP so it will authenticate you using your ip address (127.0.0.1)

login as root and:
mysql> drop user ''@'localhost';

and try again

Cheers
