mySQL won't work with password in XAMPP

Postby nonlin » 27. May 2013 09:51

Every time I set a password for mysql in the XMPP Security tab, the CD collection PHP (test? I presume?) says that it can't access the mysql database. However If I reset the password (take it off) it works.
How can I get mysql to function with a password?

EDIT: Or is that an example that won't work with the added security?

Hi nonlin,

Please start new threads with the words "Hi" or "Hello". A short salutation is an act of politeness. Even if the internet is an virtual area, there is always a human being behind the screen. A polite beginning is the first positive impression you can leave here and helps to get polite answers too. Please keep that in mind if you start a new thread in any community board.

You have to add the password in the cd collection script too.
Open your \xampp\htdocs\xampp\cds.php and change lines 5 and 78 by entering your password as third parameter of the mysql_connect function.

best wishes,

Thanks for the help and I apologize for the lack of manners. One sometime forgets the power of a good greeting (Especially on the webs :P).
