fresh install, mysql broken

Postby jason_85 » 25. October 2010 18:49

Hi everyone,

So I had just spent the whole day following "tutorials" on how to set up mysql/php/apache, and nothing worked so I decided to give this out-of-the-box xampp thing a try. It installed great on my windows 7 system, and I installed the apache and mysql services without receiving any errors. However, when I go to localhost/phpmyadmin I get the following error:

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

I couldn't find any solutions to this. Other than installing XAMPP I haven't changed any settings. Is there some installation step I'm missing??

for Mysql go to the my.ini file in either c:/windows or xampp/mysql/bin/my.ini and put your password in the password section. also go to localhost/security and set the passwords there
