 The error indicates that MySQL does not accept the credentials provided.
 The following command should fail in the same way:
 mysql -umythtv -pWA764MyE -hlocalhost mythconverg

 You can try with instead of localhost to see if that works.

 Configuration of the MySQL server is however not MythTV's responsibility.
 If you installed from source it is up to you to configure MySQL, see
 [[https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Build_from_Source | Build from Source]].  If
 MythTV was installed from packages provided by your distribution you might
 seek support from them, they might have special commands to reconfigure

 Should you want to try to change the password yourself, the following
 should work:
 mysql -u root -p mysql
 mysql> UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('WA764MyE') WHERE user='mythtv';
 mysql> quit

 Since this issue does not seem to stem from a fault in MythTV, I will
 close this ticket.  If you have some information that strongly suggests
 otherwise, you are welcome to reopen the ticket.

 Should you open a new ticket in the future, please read the
 [[https://code.mythtv.org/trac/wiki/TicketHowTo | TicketHowTo]].  You did
 not specify the MythTV version and changed the severity and priority.
 Note also that saying that you tried 'several listed ways' to fix it is
 not very helpful without stating which those ways were.
