Wamp Server


New Member
A few days ago I installed a Wamp Server and today started to fiddle with some settings. When I got to my http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ I read a notice that my server was vulnerable and needed to make a password for "root"; user login. When I made this password I was hit with.

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

I have been Searching for Fix solutions and found that I need to Configure some information to get my server to acknowledge me as the administrator.

I have done Mysql update with the following code

UPDATE mysql.user
->SET Password=PASSWORD("*******")
->WHERE User="root";


I have also gone to the config.inc.php file and updated the password

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'Mynewpasswordhere';

and changed the password statement to false.

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;

The Server still denies me access.

What now?

I am also unable to access my Drupal site,

[h=1]Error[/h] The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later. [h=2]Error message[/h] PDOException: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user '******'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in lock_may_be_available() (line 164 of C:\Wamp\www\Drupal7cp1\includes\lock.inc).

Can anyone help?

Have you tried changing the password using mysqladmin? Try restarting the server too. Also, can you post the top lines of config.inc.php? And you're also going to need to update dupral's configuration file with the updated password.

You should also check out xampp if WAMP becomes a pain to use ;)
