Re: Error nr. 1045 - Access denied [MySQL Administrator on Linux]

If MySQL is installed and running on a Linux localhost then this problem may occur even if the username and passwords are set, spelled correctly, and mysqladmin flush-privileges has been run to force MySQL to refresh the privilege table.

I found that MySQL Administrator->User Administration likes to default the user host to ANY, which shows up as @% below the listing in User Accounts. Right click to Add Host and select Local host. This allows the user to connect from localhost to localhost.

You might also check to ensure that there's a " localhost" (without quotes) line in your /etc/hosts file. If there is not then localhost may not resolve and you'll need to use the IP address in lieu of that. Of course, if you can sudo then you can add the line. It's probably there already.

MySQL on Linux can be rather strict with security, which is good because you can tighten it up for a production application.
