Subject:Unable to connect to mysql with phpmyadmin
View as plain text  
I'm wondering if someone could help me figure out why I'm getting this error
when attempting to use phpMyAdmin to connect to mysql: 

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

Error

MySQL said: 

#1045 - Access denied for user: 'root'@'localhost' (Using password: NO) or
YES

 

It doesn't seem to matter if I add a password or not. I'm able to connect to
MySQL using both MySQLCC and MySQLAdmin using root and my other accounts so
I know the passwords are correct. I'm trying to follow the documentation
that came with phpMyAdmin but I'm obviously missing something. Would someone
happen to have a detailed way of editing this file to allow connectivity? 

 

Many thanks in advance
