I installed the WAMP server. I then right-click the shortcut and run as administrator. It was obvious that PHP and Apache work, by MySQL has a problem. When I run the phpMyAdmin in the browser, I get the error:
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
I use ZoneAlarm. I let it accept incoming/outgoing traffic over the port 3306 for the trusted network which of course includes "localhost".
I looked up the internet for help. It says to give localhost a password. But that can't work with phpMyAdmin coded for WAMP because phpMyAdmin is coded not to give a password.
What should I do next?
