Subject:Can't Figure out Username and Password
View as plain text  
Hello list.  I'm new here.  I programmed dBase several lifetimes ago and now
fumble with Access when I have to. I've just purchased a license to a
vBulletin message board, which employs PHP and MySQL, so it's time I FINALLY
get around to learning these two.

I am at my first hurdle.  I uploaded all the files for vBulletin and it
appears to be working correctly, but I can't get past the first setup screen
because I am not supplying it with the correct username and password.  My
web host, who does NOT know PHP or MySQL, believes that the
username/password I use for my domain should work.  It doesn't.

I have PHPMyadmin installed on the server.  I went into it, went to the
"User" table and entered name and pw into the "default" column.  Still no
go.

Now I'm thinking that the installed MySQL either has no name/pw set up or
some others I don't know about.

Does anyone have any suggestions?  Anybody know of good documentation for
PHPMyAdmin that does not assume a lot of prior knowledge of MySQL?  I've
searched online and everything I found assumes a lot of terminology I don't
know yet.  I'm hoping I don't have to read the whole manual before I can get
past that first screen.
