I m working with MySql database, and Tomcat. I wanted to create simple web page using JSP connected to a MySql database. I m working on Win98 and am working at home.
But the problem i receive is i installed MySql and i gave a password and the server is running fine.
But when in the command line i type this
C:\mysql>bin\mysql -p
Enter password: *****
ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'ODBC@localhost' (Using password: YES)
I get the above error, even though i m typing the right password. I know the server is running as when i ping to the server i get the message that "mysqld is alive"
So i dont know why the password keeps giving me this error. Is there any way i can reset the password?
Can anyone help....pleaseeeee

you might try specifying a user. For MySQL Max 4.0 the correct command argument is:
mysql -user=some_user -password=some_password
You may be getting the error because it doesn't know what user you are trying to log in as, so it used the default user. Most cases the default user is root. I don't know where the ODBC@localhost is comming from. Usually you get a root@localhost.
This also sounds more like a MySQL problem, in which case you won't get many answers here. Maybe consult the docs at http://www.mysql.com
Hope that helps.
