My guess is that you do not have the permissions set up for your database. Lets say you have a database called database_1 and you want the user "phpuser" to have viewing and adding privelages. First you must add the user "phpuser" and set a password. Lets say the password is password. Now you grant access to databse_1 for phpuser with the following in MySQL:

GRANT SELECT,INSERT on database_1.*
TO phpuser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY "password";

Now phpuser has viewing and adding privelages to the database.

After changing the root password with mysqladmin could you login via command-line mysql text client with root and that password? Did you "mysqladmin reload"? When you change passwords mysql has to be reloaded. Is the only problem with PHP? Any specific app or something you're writing yourself? The root mysql user should be able to access any database...
