    Hi,

    I installed Wamp and created a password for the MySQL database. In doing so the breaks the myPHPAdmin link UNLESS I apply a password to that as well.

    In attempting to apply a password to myPHPAdmin I follow the steps below but still get nothing :/ Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    1. Go to Apps dir > myphpadmin folder > config.inc
    2. in config.inc I have the following:

    /* Authentication type */
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
    /* Server parameters */
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false;
    /* Select mysql if your server does not have mysqli */
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;

    THIS did not work despite forum #1 I read so I tried this (adding password line):

    /* Authentication type */
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
    /* Server parameters */
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false;
    /* Select mysql if your server does not have mysqli */
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'myactualpassword212';
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;

    Any help is greatly appreciated :)

    Sounds like a question for the WAMP forum :)
