Securing MySQL with InstantRails

I sucessfully got InstantRails installed on my WinXP Home pc and the
demo applications ran fine. I noticed that the MySQL root was the user
accessing the MYSQL Server and that there was no password used. Due to
security concerns I have added a password to the root user but this
has now broken my Rails applications. I believe I have found the
config file but am unsure how to edit it. Do I user FreeRide or such
to edit the configuration files or is there other ways of changing the
username and password used.


You don’t need a root password because MySQL is setup to only accept
connections from localhost.
