When I am trying to connect to mysql database from php script I am getting following error.

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in D:\tools\Apache2\htdocs\saz\admin\index.php on line 27

/* PHP code start*/
//Set database connection
$server = mysql_connect($host, $username, $password) or die("Can't find the Database Server");
// Select the database now:
$connection = mysql_select_db($database, $server) or die("Invalid Database schema");
$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE userID = '$userID' AND password = '$password'";
$results = mysql_query($sql);
if ($user = mysql_fetch_array($results))
echo $user['name'];
/* PHP code ended */

All the required information provided to database server are correct. I using following environment:
apache 2.0.53,
mysql 4.1.22-community-nt,
PHP 5.1.1

Please guide me how to fix the issue.

Thank you,
