    When i open up the MYSQL command line it sais

    enter password: I enter it and it sais

    Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
    Your MySQL connection id is 1 to server version: 4.1.9-nt

    Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

    now to create the database i would type
    mysql>create database wordpress;

    database created...

    Is this correct.. if so then how do i set up a username and password for this database?
