So now I'm back for more help. I have been working on this all day and can't figure it out. My issue is that I have the MySQL password written down that I used. When I enter the password, I get the following;
- Code: Select all
mysqladmin -u root -p status
Enter password: ******
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
First of all, does this mean that my password is not being accepted - i.e. - incorrect?
If so, then how can I reset the password, I can't figure it out and, as I say, I've been spending hours on this one issue at this stage.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
