    Question MySQL Installation Problem

    Hey,

    I've got a slight problem with MySQL. I've installed it on my computer so I can beta run my site without having to upload every page after modifying it. Although I've stumbled on a problem. Here it is:

    Access denied for user: 'root@127.0.0.1' (Using password: YES)

    I have quadruple checked this user and password. As far as I can work out, they're correct. I'm quite new to installing MySQL and other such stuff, I'm using the most up-to-date version of Apache, PHP and MySQL. There may be an installation file for MySQL or something that I've not set. If anyone has any idea how to resolve this, then just leave a reply to this

    Regards,
    James

    in your my.ini in your winnt folder in win2k or windows in xp/home directory remove the password so it looks like this....

    Code:
    [WinMySQLadmin]
    Server=C:/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe
    user=root
    password=(leave this field blank)
    QueryInterval=1
    i love php
