Hello, I’m trying installing wordpress using this guide :

I did all the steps right, then , when I moved to "Create a MySQL Database ", and using this command : " $ mysql -u root -p "

I got this message : "ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)

why is that ? Best Regards

In the prerequisites you need to install the LAMP stack by following this guide, did you follow this guide?

By following it you will setup the password of the root mysql account, use the password here and it should work.

Hope this helps.
