drupal5 live cd for recovering sql dump content (SOLVED)


I'm trying to use the live system CD to recover content from an sql dump of a site I used to run on drupal 5. I'm now moving to dokuwiki.

I'm running it on a live system because I don't have the extra disk space to make a persistest installation.

I tried the live system last night, and i managed to get it to work though I encountered some issues which I managed to resolve anway, eventually managing to upload and restore from the sql dump. I was thinking that since I already did it, I could do it again today. Well, apparently I'm mistaken.

I'm getting this error (which I got last night, but manage to resove):

DBI connect failed : Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I already tried using the root, mysql and drupal accounts with the default credentials but none of them are working.

What is the correct way of doing this?


i overlooked the difference between two root accounts. one is for the server/webmin, and another root for administering mysql. thanks.
