I am using NetBeans IDE 7.0.1 on Windows 7 very first time for my php. Actually in my company there is a local server ( where all projects resides and we access phpmyadmin of that local server, Although I have added my project folders with NetBeans (this was also very hectic) but now I am having problem to connect database of my local server as I can see through my browser.
I have set below value

Server Host : localhost,
Server port number : 3306,
Administrator username : keshav
Administrator password : ******

and when I click on connect, a popup error windows appears with below text

Unable to connect to the MySQL server:

org.netbeans.api.db.explorer.DatabaseException: java.sql.SQLException: Access denied  
for user 'keshav'@'localhost' (using password: YES).

The server may not be running or your MySQL connection properties 
may not be set correctly.  Do you want to edit your MySQL connection properties?

I tried to edit this into something readable but it's such a mess that I gave up. Please use proper words, capitalisation and punctuation. You might also consider using a spell checker. – John Gardeniers Jan 12 '13 at 7:45
I was able to decipher your answer, but really you're just telling them (poorly) how to install MySQL and I don't really see at all how this helps the op. – Mark Henderson Jan 12 '13 at 8:19
