Please start new threads with the words "Hi" or "Hello". A short salutation is an act of politeness. Even if the internet is an virtual area, there is always a human being behind the screen. A polite beginning is the first positive impression you can leave here and helps to get polite answers too. Please keep that in mind if you start a new thread in any community board. Thank you.

Well, thats not correct. you can use the user root even from external connections, but this user needs to be permitted from hosts other than localhost.
And i think thats the problem with your new user too. So please provide us the information you typed in in the user creation form.
