Oops - that was the copy on the local server. Try this:

Still can't login as root;

[root localhost ~]# service mysqld start
    Starting MySQL                          [OK]
[root localhost ~]# mysql -u root
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

I've been searching with Google and found that I am not alone in this proble but unfortunately there wasn't any solution that I can find helpful to resolve this issue, seems before I set a password for root user (Create one after the initial installation and before using MySQL) there is one existing already and I don't know what it is. I even yum removed MySQL and then yum groupinstall mysql to make sure a fresh installation of MySQL is being used.

I had tried followings;
[root localhost ~]# mysqladmin -u root password -p mypassword123
Enter password:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'
[root localhost ~]# mysql -u root
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
[root localhost ~]# mysql -u root -p
Enter password: (I enter blank RETURN key)
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

To reset the root password without knowing it, start mysqld without using the grant tables:

    Per Resetting a forgotten MySQL root password:
        http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/442
    []# service mysqld stop         # mysqld must be stopped
    []# /usr/bin/mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
    []# mysql -uroot mysql
    mysql> update user set Password=PASSWORD('new-pw') WHERE User='root';
    mysql> quit

Here my instructions are a bit loopy.  Probably the PID to kill is the one reported above.

    []# ps -ef | grep mysql
    []# kill [the second PID]
    []# fg          # so the shell stops too
    []# service mysqld start
