in SQL by (5k points)

I have installed a GUI tool SQLYog Community edition for windows for MySQL. Previously, I installed MySql with XAMPP. The moment I tried to connect, it displays an error: Error No. 1045 Access denied for user ‘Rahul’@’localhost’ (using password: Yes)

How to deal with this error?

As I can see, it says access denied for Rahul @localhost . I have listed down few issues:

  • There can be a chance that user Rahul does not exist at localhost.

  • You might have entered the wrong password.

  • You might have not started MySQL server. If it’s started, the port number is not 3306.

These were few of the basic techniques which can help you troubleshoot the stuff.
