Cannot connect to mysql db

Postby rosie1 » 13. June 2009 14:46

Running xamp v. 1.7.1, configured for virtual hosts on Vista Ultimate

Since updating to the latest version of xamp, I cannot connect to mysql.

I can access phpMyAdmin, but when I test with the CD demo, get the following:

"Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in C:\xampp\htdocs\xampp\cds.php on line 77

Could not connect to database!
Is MySQL running or did you change the password?"

I have checked my root password security and it confirms secure. Can someone please advise me?

Many thanks.
