There is no default passwd for both. Just switch to root and create the passwrods you need. At command line: mysql -u root

This will drop you into the mysql command line:

I don't remember the exact command there, but do consider the page www.mysql.com --> developer zone --> documentation(searchable with user comments) --> Search for the command GRANT

It will give you all the info you need.

Peace!
