Hi, Everything is set up fine and secure - and the passwords all match... but in phpmyadmin I receive the error:
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
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.
And in status mySql is listed deactivated. Any ideas how to activate and access? It isn't a password issue I don't think - but may perhaps be due to having previously had other instances of mySql running via Mampp and Tomcat..? If so, does anyone have any clue how can I make the xampp mysql the default - or else get xampp to be able to access those other databases?
Thanks for your help...
