I was hoping someone here can help me with a problem im having now with xampp 1.7.2 which seems a lot of people are. My problem is when using shell command to login to mysql it wont allow me to use any username.
Example: I type in mysql> -username=root -p=testing but when i hit enter it gives me permission denied for ODBC using password yes, and cant seem to get it to use root.
I had installed 1.7.2 before and it worked fine but some php scripts wasnt working correctly on 1.7.2 so i went back to 1.7.1 but i like the features of 1.7.2 so i went back with it and now i get this problem. I tried a lot of things to get it working but no luck and i search all over this forum and other sites but no were is there a fix for this problem that i can find.
I looked in the phpmyadmin/config.inc i think it is and but the password for room in there as well but still the same, i already setup the password for root and im able to login to phpmyadmin just fine but cant access it from shell. Does anyone have a idea why this is happening, any help would be great.
