  1. Hello Larry, Thank you for these explanations. Bit by bit I start understanding how it works. Regarding the database upgrade, I had upgraded it before changing the password and it works like that anyway. So I just disregard the error message. Best regards, Julien
  2. Just one more: Now when I open MAMP, it asks me to upgrade MySQL Databases. And when I try to do so, I get the following message: mysql_upgrade: Got error: 1045: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) while connecting to the MySQL server Upgrade process encountered error and will not continue.
  3. Hello Larry, Thank you for your swift support. It was indeed all explained in your book. I was simply not taking it in the correct order. My bad. After changing the password, my Terminal showed this message: Warning: Since password will be sent to server in plain text, use ssl connection to ensure password safety. How can I check if my Internet provider gives me a SSL connection? Now, this shows that actually I don't understand what is MAMP (or XAMPP). So I'm going to ask a series of questions that will probably look stupid to you (sorry about that): What happens for example, when I place files in the htdocs folder? Does it "stay" on my computer or is it "sent" over the Internet? I don't understand what is the risk? When I am going to create a web site, am I going to create and manage my database directly on the space provided by a web-hosting provider through phpMyAdmin or will I do this first on MAMP and then upload it on the server?
  4. Hello Larry & nomadsoulkarma, Thank you for your help. i changed the password and the config.inc.php file and I can still access phpMyAdmin from MAMP. So I guess it's alright.
  5. Dear Larry, I installed MAMP (version 5.01) on my Mac and I tried changing the password of the MySQL root user following the instruction on the MAMP web site, i.e. passing the following command in terminal: /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqladmin -u root -p password Then I am asked to enter a password. But when I do so I get: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)' I tried doing it again and entering 'YES' as a password (we never know, it might work), but I get the same result. Now, is it really necessary to change the root user password if I am going to use MAMP only to learn and what am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.
