Here, try this group, newbie and oldies, I only read it when I need
help, but they are very helpful:
>I have downloaded MySQL (1hr and 50 min)!!
>I started it fro RUN (in Windows) using mysql.exe -h localhost -u derek
> From the prompt, select user(); gave me a two line box with user() and
>derek@localhost on the two lines
> From Paul DuBois' book, page 23, Creating the database, I typed in:
>create database samp_db;
>Error 1044 Access denied for user: '@localhost' to database 'samp_db'
>Ok, Paul Du Bois, what do I do now, please??
