One more thing
Oh, and I forgot to mention. I went on the Adobe forums and someone suggested that I not use root as the mySQL user and that I should add another user to connect.
So...I added another user to the database tried to connect and then I got the unidentified error again. Could not even connect to the database after that. Not even after deleting that user and going back to using just the root user.
Something really buggy going on...
