Hi there --
I am trying to run a mysql 5.0.56 distribution, and whenever I try to either change the root password, or create a database, the following error message appears:
DBI Connect Failed:Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database <database>
The database was installed via yum onto a CentOS 5.3 server. I tried removing, and then reinstalling the database via yum, but the results were the same. What do I need to do in order to correct this problem?
