Subject:access denied for user: 'root@localhost']
View as plain text  
Ladies, gents,

I've done the bad thing. I modified the record for user root to allow
access to the database from another machine. It didn't work. Neither
does root@localhost anymore. in fact nobody can connect anymore it
seems.

I erased the mysql contents and recreated the database with
my_install_db

when I run   mysqladmin -root password '<the root pw>'   I get

" access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)"

Is there still hope?

If you think RTFM/ RTFFAQ please point me in right direction as I
haven't seen it so far, havent looked for the right words when I search

Michel
