Hello and thanks for reading my question, I just installed XAMPP on my win2k system to create a local server for modifications, so I'm a really new user to the whole local thing.
I'm sure this will probably be simple but I wanted to use bigdump.php which I use several times on my host server. So, I configured biddump.php with data base name, user name, password etc...
$db_server = 'localhost';
$db_name = 'members';
$db_username = 'root';
$db_password = 'myloginpwd';
Then I go to
and bigdump.php in the root directory of XAMPP states the following message.
Database connection failed due to Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I'm only guessing but I guess I need to set some security feature somewhere to allow this action.
1. I have XAMPP running on my file server and in this instance this is where I'm running or trying to run bigdump.php
2. My file server is upstairs and I'd like to do most of this kinda stuff, upload files, config data base etc from another computer that is conviently located infront of my TV but on the same network....Laughing but I can try to figure that stuff out later.
Anyway, any help would be great
And thanks a bunch for putting XAMPP out there!!! Very Nice
