newbie can't log in

Postby macke » 10. February 2008 21:46

When I log in to phpmyadmin I get an error 1045 MySQL said Access denied for user 'root@localhost (using password: NO.

Where do I enter the password. I have tried entering it into the config.inc.php file although it says not to alter it but to alter one with same name?

Confused newbie

>although it says not to alter it
that's coz it was just copied from libraries/config.default.php without reading the docs or http://wiki.cihar.com/pma/config.inc.php (the xampp devels promised to amend that in the next version)
I'd suggest
Code: Select all
<?php
$i=1;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'newrootpw';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
?>

as your new phpmyadmin/config.inc.php
