Prism Install saga continues

The post has changed because I have changed my install parameters. I used an earlier version of MySql and things are different. I amno longer having the issues I had before. I amnow having difficulty testing the jdbc driver because of a 1045 error. Password = yes. Has anyone ever seen this error. I am truly a novice when it comes to mysql. Please help me if you can.

I get the following error when trying to follow the instructions in the users guide for prism 2.0 on pg 298 for configuring a mysql database on win 2003 with nysql

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘admin’@‘localhost’ (using password:YES)

I did see this issue, If i remember correctly mysql was not starting correctly because mysql doesnt always like starting as root.

Locate safe_mysqld

mine is located in /usr/bin/

Try starting and stoping mysql with that and see if the error goes away.

I had the same issue and if I remeber right this will fix it.

However it might not be safe to always use root to start and stop it.

I found out that it was a license issue…hooray and thanx for the comments!!!
