which MySQL and PHP version should I use with WAMP

I recently reformatted my computer and in the process I removed my WAMP server and reinstalled it again.

I reinstalled it with WAMP 2.0, PHP 5.2.9-2, and MySql 5.1.33.

I devloped a website that worked fine on the WAMP server before and now has a few minor hiccups. (unfortunately I cannot remember the versions I had before).

The site interacts with the database on the new set up just not all the time. Some times it will insert, other times it will not. The time it will not work  is in a foreach loop, with auto commit set to false, and then committing all data to the database in one go.

Am I using the wrong version of WAMP, PHP, or MySQL?

P.S. I tried to download and use MySQL 5.0.51b and I get the message "#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) "

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Sometimes the user privileges are screwed when you switch from mysql 4 to mysql 5... there is something about the old_password function that can fix this but i can't remember what, and this may or may not help you with your problem. but its somewhere to start looking.

I'm new to setting up a new PHP MySQL server system, so rather than risk messing things up even further I ended up starting from scratch and now have it up and running. I am still haveing an odd error that I was not happening before this install.
