Is there a root user in MySQL in Plesk?

    When I run the Windows command:

    "%plesk_bin%\\plesksrvclient" -get

    I get an error.  It states:

    "Access is denied.  (Error code 5) at Unable to connect to pipe \\.\pipe\P_b0648554-d2c0-47c2-8509-fbedf7f0ba6c at (Con::ClientOverlappedPipe::create line 503) at get(wWinMain line 164)"

    When I run the following command in command line, it throws an error.

    plesk db


    "Unable to get database admin password: exit status 1 ERROR 1045 <28000>: Access denied for user 'admin'@'localhost' (using password NO)

    exit status 1"

    @Rob Simpson,

    Hi! That is because the command-line tool was not launched with administrative privileges.

    Open command line (cmd.exe) as administrator (right click on "command prompt"->"run as administrator") and execute "plesk db" again:
