what is going on with phpmyadmin

Recommended Posts

I am using phpmyadmin with xampp. 


in C:\xampp\phpmyAdmin\config.inc.php I have:


/* Authentication type and info */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '123';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;
$cfg['Lang'] = '';
it would not allow me to set a password for  user root . i keep getting 
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
