Hi. Thanks for looking.
I am setting up a dedicated server for the first time to host a site and I have the FTP accounts set up, the PHP and MySQL packages installed. MySQL administrator GUI tool installed but I cannot get phpMyAdmin to work.
I have unzipped it and put it in the root of the website folder in a folder named phpmyadmin. However when i type http://localhost/phpmyadmin/index.php into the browser on the dedicated server I always get a error.
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
I have searched the web for two days trying to get this. I have tried changing the [auth_type] settings and I have the user set as root and password as password. These settings allow me to access the MySQL Administrator GUI tool OK.
Can anyone please help me here. This is sort of a last resort.
Thanks in advance.
