Current Root Password?
Posted by: bob gailer

Windowe 10. I had an older version of MySQL. I uninstalled it using Programs and Features. Then I ran the current Windows Installer. It came to a page requesting "Current Root Password". Does this refer to the root password for the uninstalled version? I tried what I had in my notes, but install fails.

Log says "Authentication to host 'localhost'for user 'root' using method mysql_native_password failed with message: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

This is my personal computer. All I want is a completely fresh current MySQL install. What can I do to circumvent this error?
