Sorry, I didn't mean Control Panel, I meant at the Command Line
basically, when I try to access say mysqld or anything like that, and it
asks for "Password:" for the root user. I never entered a password for
the root users, so I have no idea how to respond. If I try leaving it
blank it kicks me out.

See the file 'UPGRADE' in the MediaWiki distribution.

My MySQL doesn't have a control panel, so couldn't guess. :)
