    Cool PHP Wrong username/ passwrd & MySql error: 2003 - can't connect local resolved

    Thanks for the suggestions Doug G, .....but I think I may have been barking up the wrong tree.

    In short, I developed a further complication in the form of MySql Error 2003: Cannot connect to localhost (MySql)server 10061.

    To fix, I entered.../mysql/bin> mysql --debug --standalone from cmd line(idea picked up from a misc thread).

    opened a 2nd command box and entered:" >mysql -u root -p
    mypassword" and this seemed to start mysql.exe (haven't a single clue as to why)without a glitch.

    Next, I opened phpMyAdmin/config.ini.php and changed
    $cfgServer[Si] ['host'] = 'localhost';
    $cfgServer[Si] ['user'] = 'root';
    $cfgServer[Si] ['password'] = 'mypassword'; (not sure if this poses a security risk...but once again I was able to enter phpMyAdmin homepage at first attempt)

    If anyone can explain what i've actually done and why it worked I would be grateful for the feedback.

    happy bunny
