Dear Larry, I started learning MySQL through your book. To get started, I followed you instruction to set a password to the root using MyPhpAdmin. After I have entered the password, I updated the config.inc.php file to include the password. However, I am no longer able to access the root ever since. The error message is 1045, Access denied for user root@local host (using password:YES). I researched the web for password reset but the techniques (MySQLD) could not resolve my problem. Could you advise what I can do. Thank you so much.
