Newbie - Changed MySQL password, need help desperately
First of all I am new - so I know there is a lot of this I probably shouldn't have done, but if anyone can help I would be so appreciative. I am developing a Joomla site on my local host. I changed my root password from localhost. Then I couldn't access through phpmyadmin. So I freaked out and made a copy of the data folder and the joomla site folder. Then I reinstalled xampp to reset MySql. I can now access mysql again, but when I try to copy back in the data folder nothing happens. I think I could get back to where I was yesterday right after I changed the password if it is easier, or I can go from here. Fingers crossed someone might can help. Is there a way to save this?? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
