    Unhappy MySQL database - Adding New Data Source 'Access denied for user'

    Hello all,

    I am trying to install MySQL on my machine at the moment.

    I have downloaded the file mysql-essential-5.0.21-win32 from the MySQL website and installed it. I then downloaded MySQL Control Center, which came zipped in a folder called mysqlcc-0.9.2-win32.

    I have installed both applications and I have a MySQL database which I have acquired from elsewhere. I copy/pasted it into my C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\data directory, but when I try to add a new database in MySQL CC it doesnt allow me.

    I have also installed the ODBC for MySQL (called mysql-connector-odbc-3.51.12-win32). However, when I try to add a new data source in the Control Panel I get this error:

    [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Access denied for user 'versiontwo'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    versiontwo is the name of the database.
    the database has a password.

    Any ideas? Have i not installed something?

    Thanks in advance.

    the username is 'versiontwo'. i can access the database using command line in windows (Start>Run>'cmd'>mysql etc. etc....)
