From no to new password

Postby Rykken » 19. February 2012 12:29

I setup my website with no password. Now, when I try to set one I get this error.

Fatal error: SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) [1045]
An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists. in C:\xampp\htdocs\guild\forums\includes\db\dbal.php on line 707

How do I setup a password without running into this issue?

Simply change the password in your database login of your guild forum too.
How should that script know, that you have changed the password?

best wishes,

Hmm, I opened all the config files and changed the passwords but I still get the error when trying to view my site.

Which config files are you editing? You need to find the place in your website code that has the DB credentials and modify it accordingly.
