    I had mysql install from the XAMPP bundle, but was having issues with that setup, so I uninstalled and deleted all related directories. Now, when I attempt to install mysql from their distributions from mysql.com, it will not let me assign a password to the root account. The install errors out when trying to apply the security settings.

    The error number is 1045, saying access is denied for the [email protected] user.

    Also, when I attempt to use the mysql command line client, when I enter the password, the command screen just disappears.

    Check the permissions and ownership of the mysql data directory.
