I updated the root password for my mysql installation, and then I updated my config.inc.php file in my phpmyadmin directory with the new password. (Before this root had no password)

If I now go to localhost/phpmyadmin , I cannot access the top level (where I can create databases, edit priveleges etc), but I can access any of the databases I have already created. When I try go to the top level I get:

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

Quite sure this is a simple problem! Thanks
