I'm new my MySQL admin from the command line and typically use Phpmyadmin or MySql workbench to admin machines. I'm getting a problem while trying to grant a user access to DBs and hoping I could get some help to figure it out.
[root@server20039]# mysql -u root -p Enter password: Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MySQL connection id is 21 Server version: 5.5.29 MySQL Community Server (GPL) Copyright (c) 2000, 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Type '\c' to clear the current input statement. mysql> GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'maintenance'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'qwerty' WITH GRANT OPTION; ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Then I tried this and still got the same error
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'qwerty' WITH GRANT OPTION;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY PASSWORD 'qwerty' WITH GRANT OPTION; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
I could really use a hand figuring this out!
