    MySQL 5.0

    supergrabbit Level 1

      I'm configuring MySQL Server 5.0
      when I got to the last window and clicked on Execute, the three steps (Prepare configuration, Write configuration file, Restart service) got through. But the last step (Apply security settings) couldn't get throughand I got the message: Connection Error:

      The security settings could not be applied to the database because the connection has failed with the following error.
      Error Nr. 1045
      Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

      If a personal firewall is running on your machine, please make sure you have opened the TCP port 3306 for connections. Otherwise no client application can connect to the server. After you have apened the port please press [Retry] to apply the security settings.

      If you are re-installing after you just uninstalled the MySQL server please note that the data directory was not removed automatically. Therefore the old password from your last installation is still needed to connect to the server. In this case please select skip now and re-run the Configuration Wizard from the start menu.

      I did open the TCP port 3306 for connections using the Windows Firewall, but I still receive the above message.
      Anybody has an idea, please help
