and the same password. Inform about the results.

What exact version of MySQL server you are working with? Can you connect as any other user?
[23 Feb 2009 12:13] Gonzales Jonathan
With this command mysql -V, i see :

mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.52, for redhat-linux-gnu (i686) using readline 5.1

I haven't other user, the only is "root".

[23 Feb 2009 12:36] Valeriy Kravchuk
Then, please, try to repeat with a newer version, 5.0.77, and inform about the results.

Well, i think that's my problem is linked in with the slowness of my mysql dashboard.
I explain you : when i'am on my dashboard interface and when i want to open "monitor", it's very slow.
I think that this problem and the problem of connection are linked in.

Can you explain me the protocol to be followed to pass in version 5.0.77 without harming anything.

I hope not to have blended both problems

Thanks for your help

Thank you for the feedback.

Recommendations for safe upgrade of MySQL server are at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/upgrade.html

But this looks like you try to connect to MySQL server installed by MySQL Enterprise Monitor. If is is so are you sure you have user root which allowed to connect to this server? Please consult file configuration_report.txt  located in your $INSTALL_PATH/mysql/enterprise/monitor directory for credentials.
