ok i know the problem now I have uninstalled and installed mysql from source but for some reason the user names and databases in mysql don't uninstall when I uninstall mysql.. so I can't change my password for mysql and I just forgot it =\... So how do I completely uninstall mysql from source and also get rid of the databases and usernames and passes in mysql... If I can get that done I can install it from there thanks in advance.

I really don't know mysql, but I managed a few weeks ago to build a Counter Strike server on a linux box wich used Mysql to create real time stats.

I had the same problem when trying to access my database. The solution was this:

Optional: Create a MySQL username and password for HLstats.

shell> mysql --user=root mysql
mysql> GRANT ALL ON hlstats.* TO hlstats IDENTIFIED BY 'somepassword';

The first "hlstats" is the database name, the second is the username to create.

Note Depending on your MySQL server configuration you may need to do "TO hlstats@localhost" instead of just "TO hlstats".

Hope it helps
