I just installed mySQL 4 and cannot log in.
The instructions at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Access_denied.html
did not help because they do not list the error which is
ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)
The very forst thing the instructions say to do is log in and put passwprds on the root user but I cannot log in. The instructions say to
mysql -u root
but this just results in the error message above. Please help.
