Major problem - Need serious help :(
Basically the problem is that every time I launch MAMP PRO and start the servers, when the MySQL server attempts to start I get this message...
Then I try out of curiosity the webstart button to attempt to open the MAMP start page... and I get this error
/Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqlcheck: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) when trying to connect
Finally I use the "Launch PhpMyAdmin Button".. and I get this error
Error: Could not connect to MySQL server!
This all seems to have happened when I stupidly tried to create a new user in PHP myadmin and I think I have entirely messed up the "root" account - However with this kind of topic this is as far as my knowledge goes... I am baffled..
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Unknown language: en-iso-8859-1.
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.
How can I restore everything to normal so that I can access the MAMP start page, phpmyadmin etc ??? Ive tried completely uninstalling MAMP/MAMP PRO, nothing..
I've looked high and low on Google and all I can find are pages of words that are double dutch to me... I dont understand what the problem is basically. This will probably sound really stupid to alot of you but I really do not know what to do here I would just like MAMP PRO to work again.. when ive tried to read all of these "fixes" they talk about the root account, but since i edited the root account in phpmyadmin - what account are they talking about, a database account, the root account of the computer itself?? I really don't even care enough to know all I want is it to work again ... im SO confused..
Can someone please explain to me in laymens terms whats happened here and how I can fix it? I would be so greatful...
