I am using mysql 5.1. I have the setup the mysql with a username:root
and a password:******
But when I am trying to acess the databse I get a connection error. no
Not sure I understand exactly what you mean when you say "trying to access the database", but if you mean you're getting this error when you try to access the database via your Rails app.... if you created a password for the MySQL user name root, then you need to specify that password in database.yml. If I've misunderstood, you'll need to provide more detail on what exactly is set up how.
