Messed up database (2 posts)

    I had WP running nicely with mamp, then i tried to prepare everything for the transfer to a server.

    I first of all duplicated the wp folder, then i backed up the database.

    After rushing through may options with a support / via chat window, i deleted the local root user. Yes, probably sounds stupid.

    I get the following message from MAMP:

    Error message:

    /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqlcheck: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) when trying to connect

    How do i restore things to the way they were? I can't connect to the database to make any changes.

    Many thanks,
