Problems Installing MYSQL


Recommended Posts

I think I have got myself into a bit of trouble.

I am setting up a development environment on my PC with the ultimate aim of installing Oscommerce.

I was having difficulty with the operation of Mysql so I decided to reinstall it.

When it is processing the configuration it fails to apply security settings and comes up with a message:

Error 1045 Access denied for user root@localhost (using password: NO)

It suggests that I open TCP port 3306. This has been done already and was successful in previous installation.

It then suggests that if I am reinstalling then the password of the original installation is still stored and needs to be used. I am now thinking that I have forgotten my password which is likely as it has only been used once and that was about a week ago. However I am 90% sure I have got the password right but ten agaiin maybe not.

How can I reset everything so that I can start afresh with new password?

Any help would be appreciated
