Unable to connect to MySql after editing pw file


Recommended Posts

As soon as you change the root username in the mysql_password file, that is the new password. So it has to be root/ and not root/root.


Make sure you do not chnage it elsewhere also... only in the mysql_password file.


Hope this helps..

It is also important to make sure your text editor does not add a Windows/DOS line terminator (0x0D0A) to the mysql_password file. It took me quite a while last night to figure this out the hard way.


Also read the post by Yofazza in the topic "What is the mySQL password".


phpMyAdmin is an excellent program and the Uniform Server is a great package.
