I installed xampp and tried to add a root password. After I did that, every time I try to get to phpMyAdmin I get this error:
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
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.
I have uninstalled xampp and reinstalled it, yet I still get this error.
Also, SMTP was disabled when I installed xampp and I don't know if it should be active or not. If it should be enabled, how do I do it please?
