I think in the PHP Admin, you need to setup your server as a trusted server. BTW, Do you have a lot of expertise with PHP and web design. Thanks, Alex Randal Rust <randalrust at gmail.com> wrote: I have a WAMP installation where I am having issues connection to MySQL with PHPMyAdmin. MySQL is version 4.1 and PHPMyAdmin is 2.7.0-pl1. Everytime I bring up PHPMyAdmin, I get this message: "phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in config.inc.php and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server." "ERROR" "#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)" I have never seen this error before. And then, last week I was trying to set up a stack on a Dell laptop and ran into the exact same issue. I have never had problems setting this up before. It's really been as simple as unpacking/unzipping everything, configuring Apache and PHP and then launch PHPMyAdmin.
