My issue is that since I set my mysql root password, I can not connect to my localhost database, nor log onto phpmyadmin.
I followed this tutorial http://youtu.be/BPjpRzdrug8 and at the very last step to log back in, nothing works. I've tried connecting to the database using 127.0.0.1 and localhost as the host and still nothing.
in phpmyadmin/config.inc.php set passwords for $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] and $cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] - no luck
restarted computer - no luck
I did recently deleted everything from my cache folder per Apple Support because my system was running slow. Would that matter?
