Make Initialize-database error

I’m getting the following error when I try to initialise the database :

Password: DBI connect(’;host=localhost’,‘root’,…) failed: Access
denied for user: ‘root@localhost’ (Using password: YES) at
//opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database line 80
Failed to connect to dbi:mysql:;host=localhost as root: Access denied
for user: ‘root@localhost’ (Using password: YES) at
//opt/rt3/sbin/rt-setup-database line 80, line 1.
make: *** [initialize-database] Error 255

If someone could help that would be great.

Best Regards,
Kevin

this is only tangentially related to RT. As the error said, mysql
didn’t like you. This might be because you type the wrong password,
you have the wrong user, or it normally authenticates root without a
password. you didn’t provide enough information to say.
