Not sure I understand exactly what you mean when you say “trying to
access
the database”, but if you mean you’re getting this error when you try to
access the database via your Rails app… if you created a password
for
the MySQL user name root, then you need to specify that password in
database.yml. If I’ve misunderstood, you’ll need to provide more detail
on
what exactly is set up how.
