I'm receiving an error from both logon.exe and world.exe,
MySQLDatabase: Connection failed due to: `Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'

which appears to be a somewhat common issue with MySQL. I have found suggested fixes for this issue, but in attempting said fixes, like using the cmd string
mysql -u root -pxxx

to reset the root password. I receive
ERROR 1045 <28000>: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

which is, correct me if I'm wrong, essentially the same issue. for this ArcEmu install I'm on a windows 7, doing a manual compile, not using a repack, and populating my world DB with the Pathway of the Damned world DB. any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Forgot one other detail, using MySQL 5.5.25

There's nothing to "fix" there, you are just using the wrong password...
Also if you have a problem with MySQL that's none of our business, we don't make Mysql. Oracle does.
