you need first to check the config file config.inc.php file inside the phpmyadmin folder?


otherwise, please check this FAQ: http://www.phpmyadmin.net/documentation/#faqconfig
2.6 I get an "Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)"-error when trying to access a MySQL-Server on a host which is port-forwarded for my localhost.

When you are using a port on your localhost, which you redirect via port-forwarding to another host, MySQL is not resolving the localhost as expected.
Erik Wasser explains: The solution is: if your host is "localhost" MySQL (the command line tool mysql as well) always tries to use the socket connection for speeding up things. And that doesn't work in this configuration with port forwarding.
If you enter "127.0.0.1" as hostname, everything is right and MySQL uses the TCP connection.

I'm looking at it now....what am I looking for? The only thing I see regarding the password is thispart of the code fromt eh file"

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';

that's it. possibly, the mysql itself has a non-empty password (hopefully), so you would need to put that password in there ...
