Mysql and PHPmyadmin auth error


when i run mysql i get access denied

it all worked fine before I TRIED setting a password for root@localhost
After I did that i can now not login and of couse this was before i created a second super user so im pretty f'ed up.

So i changed the mysql name to mysql_old and ran mysql_install_db command and it returns no errors but it does nothing.

the Mysql documention says it will not overwrite the privileges db hence the name change, according to the documentions that is what you need to do.

When that didnt work i even tried re-instaling mysql but its not overwriting the old db with a fresh one so i right back at square one.

Im guessing that the file mysql is not the db file? if its not then what is?

I can run phpmyadmin as apache@localhosts but it only shows the test db and wont let me do anything sice i have no privileges under that name .

It also returns this
The $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] directive MUST be set in your configuration file!

not sure what that means either

Been working on this all day just trying to get this all setup and learning more about linux in this one day then i learned about winbloze in three years, so any help is appreciated....

Im going for a beer
