Level 1
Level 1

Dear Experts,


I am trying to connect to mysql on ucsd using command "mysql -u admin --password=xxxxx db_private_admin -A" and i get below error.

mysql: [Warning] Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'admin'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

as a Password i have tried GUI Password, shelladmin Password and root Password. i am not sure if there was any other Password set.

on shelladmin i see a possibility to reset mysql Password but i ma not sure if there is any consequence of it.


Could someone please share his/her expertise on this matter?

Thanks in advance.

Is there a reason you are connecting to the DB directly? Is it to check some entries?

I need to do custom reporting and was looking at example which eventually connect to DB and moreover it is always good to have Access on DB :)
