Im using Windows 2003 IIS, installed PHP 5 and it works, and installed MySQL.
Trying to start index.php on PHPmyADMIN and get #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO).
Tried to install MySQL with password root but get the same message.
Im stuck and need some help. (This is the first time installing PHP, MySQL and PHPmyadmin)
How can I solve this?

Thank you for replying.
