Access denied on MySQL

Post by achab61 »

Hi all,
I'm pretty new on using MAMP and I'm experiencing the following problem:

trying to connect to MySQL within MAMP (version 6.6) using a Python script, I'm getting the error "Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)".
I tried also to don't specify any password but I get the same error.

I'm using Mac O.S. Monterey 12.2 version.

Any suggestion is welcome.

Thanks a lot
