Check if you are correctly setting the root password, but remember you can reset the password.

First things first.

Stop mysql server

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop

Log in as root and stop the mysql daemon. Now lets start up the mysql daemon and skip the grant tables which store the passwords.

mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &

You should see mysqld start up successfully. If not, well you have bigger issues. Now you should be able to connect to mysql without a password.

mysql --u root mysql

update user set Password=PASSWORD('new-password') where user='root';
flush privileges;
