Hi All,

I can access the database from the terminal on Fedora 3,

[root@localhost bin]# ./mysql -h localhost -u root -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 2 to server version: 4.1.10a-standard

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.


But, get the following error when accessing via phpMyAdmin with user as 
root and the correct password,

phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected 
the connection. You should check the host, username and password in and make sure that they correspond to the information 
given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

|#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I don't understand this. What have I missed..?

$cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] = 'http://localhost/phpMyAdmin-2.6.1-pl3/';

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user']          = 'root';      // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password']      = 'password is correct';          
// MySQL password (only needed
