[ubuntu] #2002 Cannot log in to the MySQL server

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – The story: A couple days ago I had created a new database and added a table to it using phpMyAdmin running on the Chrome browser. I then attempted to do something else, don't remember what, using the same software, when Chrome crashed. I then could not get into the database using my name. (I had done everything else using my name.) I could however get in using root. I could also log into MySQL using "mysql -h localhost -u root -p" I decided to stop and restart MySQL using "sudo stop mysql" and "sudo start mysql". Since then I have not been able to get into MySQL (Hardware)
