My application is working
I appreciate your reply, but with my limited knowledge, I didn't understand what to do. I decided to eliminate anonymous and users with ::1 or % host field. I then re-ran
my permissions.sql script. That seemed to solve the problem. My application is working on localhost.
If Ihave to rebuild my system again I will run your script and, after step 2 - Installing MYSQL 5, I will check the user table in mysql and remove any anonymous users before going to step 3.
