Setup MySQL on Ubuntu Droplet getting error ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Hi guys, I am very new to using a service like digitalocean (opposed to a one click setup of mediatemple or godaddy) and I am trying to setup and configure a new DB using MySQL but I keep getting the error
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I have googled this, and searched the community for answers but cannot seem to solve this issue. Am I missing something? I have tried running it as root, and running it with sudo through another user and cannot get around it. If I offer no password it gives the same error but instead of using password: YES, it’s NO.
