Don't run that as root. Switch to the magento user and re-run the command.

Its not accepting any password that I have used. 

 

Re: Database not allowing me to use indexer

Should I have to input the magento account password or the database password that I have used ?

magento account password

Re: Database not allowing me to use indexer

I'm really sorry I'm unable to login or change the user that way, it is not accepting the password, I have shared the screen shot in my previous replies. Please look into and check if I am writing my commands in the right directory or not. If there is any link on this it would really great.
