I am new to rail and have been trying to work out a problem for a week:
I am using Windows Vista (my first mistake) and have installed Instant Rails, followed the directions precisely and am stuck on trying to connect to my MySql Database. When I go to my command line and enter: mysqladmin -u root create depot_development I always get the following error:
connect to server@localhost failed error: ‘Access denied for root@localhost
I have check security setting, added an explicit user name and password and commented out the socket line to no avail. I know I am missing something. I appreciate any help you can give me.
