I installed wordpress on my linux OS. Following steps provided from here:
These are the steps I used mentioned in the link.
1) sudo apt-get install wordpress php5-gd
2) sudo ln -s /usr/share/wordpress /var/www/wordpress
3) sudo bash /usr/share/doc/wordpress/examples/setup-mysql -n wordpress localhost
After installation wordpress launched with no problems. However, when I went to phpMyAdmin I couldn't login because it said my password was wrong. I been using the same password for years for my projects. And I logged into phpMyAdmin 10 minutes before installing wordpress.
I also tried accessing the MySQL database through the terminal and it too didn't recognize my password(s). Does anyone know why this happened or have experienced anything similar that might help me solve this problem?
Any advice would help.
