Did you type mysql mysql when you logged into the MySql command line prog?

If so, then try

USE mysql

at the mysql> prompt....

seems you are not logged in as root.

When you first install MySQL, there are 2 users: " " and "root". As they both run on your localhost in this instance.

so if u have not set a password for the root user (root@localhost) just log in as root.
if you DO have a password just log in as root:

without password:

C:\MySQL\bin\mysql -u root [ENTER]
("mysql" to start, -u <username> to spcify username)

WITH password:
C:\MySQL\bin\mysql -u root -p
("mysql" to start, -u <username to specify username and -p to let mysql know you want to be asked for a password)

You should get something like this:"

Code:
C:\MySQL\bin>mysql -u root -p
Enter password: ********
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL conection id is 2 to server version 4.1.12a-nt

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> _


If it works, good luck,

if not, you can contact me through MSN messenger (club662@hotmail.com) i will try to help you as much as i can as these forums are kinda slow.

I know it's important to learn how to config AMP, but for me to get started in the learning process i used XAMPP. Here's the link to it. http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html
What I like about it is that you don't have to install anything. Just download the zip file and unzip anywhere on your hard drive and place all your work into the "htdocs: folder and away you go. Of course later on you will need to learn how to config AMP, but this is good for the time being, so you can begin PHPing.
Enjoy :D
