MySQL ErrorLog - [Note] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Hi! I have a problem with mySQL. Checking the error log, i saw a list of [Note] Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES) errors for every day.

Can someone tell me why that’s happened? How can i know who or what is trying to acceed with root?

(I’m so sorry for my bad english :P )

Thx, Nicholas

My english is very bad, but in you console you can create a new user with all privileges. May be your password is wrong:

  • mysql -u root -p -h localhost *CREATE USER ‘myNewUser’@‘localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘myNewPassword’; *GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON . TO ‘myNewUser’@‘%’; *FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Now you can enter whit the user myNewUser.
