Okay, so I want to build WordPress themes. To help with this I want to run a local installation of WordPress. So I loaded Xampp. Got MySQL and Apache up and running. Went to localhost to make sure everything is working alright, it seemed to be. Then I went to PHPMyAdmin to configure a database for WordPress to use. And I get a message that says "Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'."
So apparently I set up a database previously on my computer and have forgotten about it, not to mention the login info for it. How can I go about removing the old databse, or at least having Xampp not try to use that particular database?
