When I execute my program I get the  mysql error

Connect Database SQLException: Access denied for user 'user'@'localhost' (using password:YES)

The only way I can run the program is as root and I would like to run it as a regular user

The databse administrator needs to create a schema for you and you should know user and password

The command should be something like that:
CREATE USER 'test'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'your_password';

yan: I logged on as root, brought up mysql, and executed the command you suggested.  I then enter the command

SELECT user FROM mysql.user;

and got the following list

al
root
root

root

al root

The list appears exactly like it appeared on my computer including the blank lines.  I redid the passwords and the problem still appears.
Any thoughts?  Thankss

At the command line prompt I simply type:

mysql

and hit the enter key.  If I do it as root I get the mysql prompt, if I do it as another user I get the error.

Try this command as another user - it should prompt you for that user's password
mysql -u anotheruser -p

Open in new window

Your suggested command allows me to access mysql from the prompt as a user other than root.  As you can see from my original post my ultimate problem is getting an access denied error when executing my application.  That problem still exists.  Any ideas?

Are you connected to the db from the same host as the one on which the db is running?

'connected' should be 'connecting'
