Access denied after clearing some accounts

Postby sophieadams » 02. January 2011 15:23


I was having a problem when running a simple php insert page that called from a file that had a class with functions. I had the following error..

Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'cw1'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\wk7\studentfunc.php on line 29
SQL Connection error: Access denied for user 'cw1'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

User name and password was correct . My db_config.php was correct. Without going into too many details, I decided to go into privledges and clear some user accounts.

Immediately after doing that, I recieved the following error :

MySQL said: Documentation
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

My is as follows..

Code: Select all
 * This is needed for cookie based authentication to encrypt password in
 * cookie
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'xampp'; /* YOU SHOULD CHANGE THIS FOR A MORE SECURE COOKIE AUTH! */

 * Servers configuration
$i = 0;

 * First server

/* Authentication type and info */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']            = 'config';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user']                 = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password']             = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword']      = true;

/* Server parameters */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host']             = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type']     = 'tcp';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress']         = false;

/* Select mysqli if your server has it */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';

/* User for advanced features */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pma';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';

/* Advanced phpMyAdmin features */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pmadb']            = 'phpmyadmin';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['bookmarktable']    = 'pma_bookmark';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['relation']         = 'pma_relation';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_info']       = 'pma_table_info';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_coords']     = 'pma_table_coords';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pdf_pages']        = 'pma_pdf_pages';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['column_info']      = 'pma_column_info';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['history']          = 'pma_history';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['designer_coords']  = 'pma_designer_coords';

 * End of servers configuration

 * Directories for saving/loading files from server
$cfg['UploadDir']   = '';
$cfg['SaveDir']     = '';

$cfg['AllowAnywhereRecoding']       = true;
$cfg['DefaultCharset']              = 'utf-8';
$cfg['DefaultLang']                 = 'en-utf-8';
$cfg['DefaultConnectionCollation']  = 'utf8_general_ci';

$cfg['MySQLManualBase'] = '';
$cfg['MySQLManualType'] = 'searchable';


Please advise!
