I do not want to get the reputation as a spammer and be hated by the ruby and rails community??! But where are the best forums for help with rails and ruby please, and which ones are the most user freindly? I have a little tech problem: I have a lap top running xp home service pack two and I have installed ruby 1.8.2 and rails 1.0.0 I also have mysql 4.1.16-nt via tcp/ip running on the laptop, so all three pieces of software are on the laptop. Background :this version of mysql comes with a client, but unfortunately the client does not talk to the server in its standard configuration because the mysql server has enhansed security, so the new style passwords are not understood if the client uses them, (which it does by default). any way as you are may be aware you can change the password so that the client can connect to the server... but that's another story... I have used SciTE to create a file called create .sql , this file is a number of lines of sql to create a table. Now ordinarilly I would create a table using Mysql Query browser to issue some lines of sql to create the table making sure I use the correct datasbase of course, but this time I am wanting to use the mysql client to execute the code in the create.sql file which is in the db directory of my rails application. so i type from the prompt mysql depot_development <db/create.sql return depot_development is the the database I want to put the table into, and it was created previously by me. I get back: ERROR: 1045 <28000>: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' <using password: NO> mysql error messages are sometimes confussing-- I think?? I wonder what's going on, can any one help me please ta v much Julian K Bowler

Try telling the mysql client that you want to log in. $ mysql -u username -p databasename It will prompt you for a password. If you get in, then just type "source create.sql".

The way you do this is as follows. 1) log in to mySQL as root. Open a Command Window, cd to the app directory (probably 'depot' in your case), and enter: mysql -u root -p Then just hit enter when prompted for the root password, or enter one if you've set one up for the root user. 2) enter the following line to grant access to the "ODBC" user grant all on depot_development.* to 'ODBC'@'localhost'; 3) enter the following line to exit exit The only other thing I see that may be contributing to your problem is the 'using password: NO' part of the error message. If you still get the error message after making the change above, you may need to change the password field in your database.yml file. I just leave it blank for development on my desktop.

Use the -u and -p options for this. For details see the MySQL documentation at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mysql-comma... Regards
