When I tried to install MySQL (file: mysql-5.1.45-winx64). And in the stage: "Apply security settings", I always got
"The security settings could not be applied to the dtabase:
Error Nr. 1045
Access denies for user 'root@localhost'(using password: YES)"
When I tried to run as Administrator:
"C:\Tools\MySQL\bin\mysqld" --defaults-file="C:\Tools\MySQL\my.ini" MySQL
I got the same problem.
And when I tried mysql -u root -p and type in the password, it still gives me the same access defined information. :
During my installation, I did install and uninstall different format of this MySQL version for several times. Could anyone give me some hint on what went wrong? Or how could I clear all previous cases and reinstall it and how could I make sure I could succeed in "Apply security settings" stage?
I followed the online tutorial to install MySQL 5.1 so I think this should be a standard question in installing MySQL. Thanks for any help.
