Mysql on Milestone7 "Error 1045 (28000)

I installed mysql on a fresh install of milestone 7 and when I try to log into mysql ether though the command or phpMyAdmin it fails even when using root.

From mySQl I get a

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access devined for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)

I have tried restarting the mySQL service and that didn’t change anything, anyone have any other clues?

(Maybe the most reported mysql error of all)
