Access Denied to PhpMyAdmin

Postby mastoner20 » 15. October 2009 23:02

Hey everyone, I'm new to xampp after a friend of mine said it's a great tool for learning php, and I've come into an issue. He told me to change my root passwords for everything, so I changed them to root, and cannot access phpMyAdmin without getting an error message saying

" MySQL said: Documentation
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) "

Is there anything I can do to fix this, and how?

Thanks!
Mark

How did you do this?

See if these search results help

Read A matter of security (A MUST READ!) in the readme_en.txt file in the xampp folder for the correct way to set a password for the root user in MySQL and phpMyAdmin.

Thank you very much! I don't know why I overlooked that when reading the readme, but I fixed it. Many thanks again, and I'll try searching better next time, :P
