After you reset your MySQL root user password, did you reload the
tables so that your new password would be recognized? That is done
using either of the following:
mysqladmin -u root reload
mysqladmin -u root flush-privileges
NOTE: The "-u root" portion is based on an assumption that prior to
changing your password, the password had been blank.
