Hello prateekm,

in WAMP, use this syntax for your connection establishment;

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","root" ,"");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

Hope it will help you...
Why you are writing port number with localhost? Also No username "pm" with password as "empty string" is registered.

Is 'pm' an user? Try 'root' and no password (default settings).

thanks bro.....i got my mistake......its working with root and no password
