First of all let me make sure I am doing this right. When I go to PuTTY and enter www.danconia.us as the Host Name and then try to log in as…
Password: (the password I am nearly positive that I set for root user)
It tells me that access is denied. Am I doing something wrong or have I just forgotten the root password? The reason I ask is because I want to grant more / all privileges to my regular user since I was advised not to regularly use the root user to make changes to MySQL databases. When I try it as my regular non-root user it gives me an “access denied” error if I remember correctly.
I am suspicious that I am trying to grant the privileges incorrectly or something. Should I even be using PuTTY? Any help would be appreciated.
PS Also when I try to use phpmyadmin and log in as “root” and then use the password it also does not work.
