Newbie logon problem - MySQL

Hi All, I just installed MySQL 5.0.15-win32 on a WinXP-Pro/SP2 workstation with plenty of RAM/HD resources. I elected to install all components. In the process, I don't recall it ever asking me to assign a username, but if it did, I'm confident I'd specify my standard username.

    Default Newbie logon problem

    Hi All,

    I just installed MySQL 5.0.15-win32 on a WinXP-Pro/SP2 workstation with
    plenty of RAM/HD resources. I elected to install all components. In the
    process, I don't recall it ever asking me to assign a username, but if it
    did, I'm confident I'd specify my standard username. I was under the
    impression that the only ID MySQL cared about was my email address.

    I started mysql in a Command window. I supplied the -u parameter followed
    by a space and
    -- my standard username first,
    -- my email address the second time,
    followed by a space and -p

    In each case, in response to the password prompt I supplied:
    -- the password I supplied during installation the first time
    -- the password I supplied during download the second time.

    Nothing seems to work. Should I just uninstall and then reinstall again
    paying more attention the next time?

    Regards,
    Richard

    Hi All,

    I redid the configuration and, at the end, saw that the password I entered
    during installation was for the user "root". When I used that, I got the
    "mysql>" prompt.

    Problem solved!

    Regards,
    Richard
