error using phpMyAdmin


We set up php on a webserver with Mysql version 4. When we try and connect to the phpMyAdmin page it give us this error:


Welcome to phpMyAdmin 2.5.6

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

Error

MySQL said:
#1045 - Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)

I know I need to set up a password for the root user, and then configure the config.inc.php with the new password. I cannot remember how to do this however. Can someone help me out? Thanks

Can you log in through a terminal with the username and password you are trying to use in the config.inc.php file?
