Response to: error 1044 and 1045...BINGO!

Thank You gaga1 for posting your fix that you found totally on your own with no help of the author, tutorial, etc.
It's nice to follow a tutorial like this and do things but sometimes the authors don't think it too important to tell us about little syntax idiosyncrasies like the difference between -u root and -uroot. with the former I spent hours trying to figure out why I couldn't connect. with the latter of which you provided It worked. I'm in as root user. and I am realatively comfortable with unix but was totally unaware of the whitespace issue in using mysql. I hope everyone else that had this problem can fix it here. It worked for me and others. once again. a big thanks for the trial and error method of gaga1 and not the help of the author.
