  1. Thanks for taking the time to answer. I will see if I can figure this out. It seems, however, that I do need a password because when I am trying the exercises on the book, the only way I seem to be able to check the work is by having a password. In other words, I can only check how the work looks online with a password.
  2. Mr. Ullman, I am a beginner here, one could say. I am reading your book, PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites, and I am clueless on how to set the password on the root MySQL user. I downloaded the XAMPP and on page A8 of your Appendix A, it says "connect to MySQL client." Well for starters, what the hell is the MySQL client, is that this XAMPP? Then your appendix says to go to chapter 4 (terrible way to teach by having to cross reference) so I did that but nothing really pertaining on how to set this darn password. I tried going to the command DOS or whatever it is called, and I typed exactly what you have there but that doesn't work either, I keep on getting syntax errors. Anyway please help b/e I'm stuck here and I don't feel you've explained this very well.
