Security Screen Seems to show wrong info

Postby tonyopp » 27. August 2009 22:43


I used phpMyAdmin to change the password for my root user in mysql.

After doing this, and shutting down and restarting all of XAMPP, when I go back to the security page it still tells me:

"The MySQL user root has no password"

When I use Terminal to try to start the mysql client by simply typing:


I get this error:

"Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)"

If I log in by entering:

mysql -u root -p

I am prompted for my root password, and when I enter it I get in.

So why is XAMPP's security page still reporting that the MySQL root user has no password?

Thanks in advance.

When I install a new XAMPP version I always use the XAMPP security program to change the password for the MySQL-root user.
Maybe this program registers also something for the XAMPP pages.
