2) Now, from the same command line, try typing :

mysql -p

and enter the password for the current user. If your user didn't need a
password, remove the -p

Post the response here.
[ian@localhost ~]$ mysql -p
Enter password:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
3)From the same command line, try typing :

mysqladmin -p extended-status

This should give a whole list of details about the running mysql server
(if indeed it is running). Again, the -p parameter is only necessary if
the user connecting to the mysql server requires a password to do so. If
not, you  don't need the -p parameter.
I get the whole list of details as you mention.

What I think the problem is - is that I now have a new installation of MySQL and thus it does not yet have any users or passwords set-up in it.

So what I tried was...

mysql> CREATE USER 'ianw'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'pwd';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> GRANT ALL ON db1.* TO 'ianw'@'localhost';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

But when I try to get into MyAdmin with this user and pwd I get

#1045 Cannot log in to the MySQL server

I'm stumped?????

Thanks for the help - appreciated
