Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: Error message when entering localhost/phpmyadmin i browser

    Error message when entering localhost/phpmyadmin i browser

    Hi!

    I'm new to Wamp, PHP and MySql.

    I'm developing a Joomla site locally using Wamp server 2.0 Now i'm about to put the site online and also upload the database files. But when I enter 'localhost/phpmyadmin' in the browser, I get this error message:

    #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    and:

    phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    I will appreciate any help!

    Are you using this WAMP? http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php
    It's the one that I always use. It requires no setup; you can connect to the database through PHPMyAdmin right out of the box.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Yes, I'm using the WAMP you're reffering to - though the PHP is version 5.2.9-1 and MySQL is version 5.1.33, so it's a bit older than the one's available now (if it that makes any difference!?).

    But it still doesn't work, so I'm a bit lost. Any other suggestions?
