Uniform Server 3.5: Clean Unzip, MySQL Error: #1045 Access Denied


Recommended Posts

I have downloaded and unzipped Uniform Server 3.5


I have changed nothing.


When I run Server_Start.bat everything appears to work perfectly with the exception of MySQL.


If I click on phpMyAdmin from the admin panel, I get this:



MySQL said:

#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


If I attempt to change the MySQL password via the admin panel, I get this:


Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in W:\home\admin\www\mqsetup.php on line 46

Error connecting to mysql


I cannot login via command line with "W:\usr\local\mysql\bin\mysql -uroot -proot" because I get the following:

ERROR 1045 (28000) Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


I'm at a loss as to how I can get MySQL working. I have no competing installation of MySQL on my box. This is a completely fresh copy of Uniform Server, out of the box.


my 'mysql_password' file says 'root' in it. It appears that's what the system things is correct...

Well, something was conflicting with it. I tried to install MySQL standalone and it also was unable to connect--until I killed and restarted all mysql and apache related services.


Now it works great. Yay! I love Uniform Server :D

Same problem here, but not so lucky =(


Tried all the stuff described here, but even if I kill all mysql processes and restarted, i'm unable to access to phpMyadmin


WHY?! sigh sob


By the way: I'm using Uniform Server for 3-4 months. It's awsome, simple and great, but this thing happened suddenly (yesterday it worked!)
