Subject:   Can't log in to MySQL - seems to be properly configured

Response to: Can't log in to MySQL - seems to be properly configured

I was getting an access denied error:


#28000Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)


I got around the problem by deleting the password. from the root account. It is not the ideal solution but it will allow me to continue the tutorial. I had tried setting MySQL to use the old password format but that had no effect whatsoever. Deleting the password was the only thing that worked for me.
