    When I try to install the WordPress add in to WebMatrix, I am told to enter the password for the "root" username of my existing MySQL database. My password is "root", but it will not accept that.
    Please help.

    I have a My SQL database already. I am prompted for the password which I enter but it says it cannot connect.

    I have access to my MySQL database. Can I add a user and new password to allow the WordPress to install?

    When I go to the command prompt and enter MySQL, I am asked for the password. I enter it and it works. The same password does not work for installing WordPress in WebMatrix. Why is that?

    The database I am using is in development on my local machine (localhost).

    WordPress is evidently unable to connect to an existing MySQL database in WebMatrix.
