So some months ago, I made an new windows install and copied my entire WAMP folder to an external HDD. When I reinstalled WAMP I just made a copy back and everyting worked fine. At least I think I reinstalled it, iam not even so sure.
Anyway, today I wanted to move my wordpress site to a live webhost. So I followed the steps and it made me login to PHPmyadmin. But for some reason, I could not login with my normal info. So I followed some steps to reset it. And when I did, in my PHPmyadmin, I did not see my wordpress database. When I tried to check if my local wordpress was still working, it did not! It gave error "Error establishing a database connection"But before I even reset this PHPmyadmin stuff, It worked fine!
So what the hell did I just do? Pls tell me I did not delete everything without any hope to recover it!
To recover the password for PHPmyadmin, I followed these steps:
Regaining access to lost MySQL password for PHPMyAdmin on WAMP
But even before I did that, I also followed these instrutions:
Browse to Installed drive:\Wamp\apps\phpmyadmi
n3.5.1 open config.inc.php
change "auth_type" from cookie to config
] = 'root';
ord'] = '';
'] = false;
Right now, My phpmyadmin config file looks like this:
/* Servers configuration */
$i = 0;
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '---REMOVED FOR EE---'; //What you want
/* Server: localhost  */
se'] = 'Local Databases';
] = '127.0.0.1';
sion'] = 'mysqli';
type'] = 'cookie';
] = '---REMOVED FOR EE---';
ord'] = '---REMOVED FOR EE---';
// Hidden databases in PhpMyAdmin left panel
e_db'] = '(information_schema|mysql
// Allow connection without password
'] = true;
// Suppress Warning about pmadb tables
// To have PRIMARY & INDEX in table structure export
_table'] = true;
] = true;
$cfg['MySQLManualBase'] = 'http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/'
/* End of servers configuration */
I did made a backup a few days ago of the complete wamp folder, so pls tell me how to make it work again.
