WampServer 2 on Vista: Password Woes
Posted on 2007-11-23
I installed the latest version of WampServer 2 under Vista.
phpMyAdmin prompted me: "Your configuration file contains settings (root with no password) that correspond to the default MySQL privileged account. Your MySQL server is running with this default, is open to intrusion, and you really should fix this security hole."
I set a password via Privileges | Change password.
I copied this password to $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] in \apps\phpmyadmin2.10.1\config.inc.php.
All I get now is: "#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)"
I've tried this several times now, and am certain I'm following the instructions correctly. What can I do?
