WAMP5 and IPB Error ><

So I'm new to all this stuff about running servers on your own computer. But I recently got WAMP to work for me and make it so I can do what I've been wanting to do, Mess around with scripts and such.

So I got my IPB installed and its working... But then it stopped, so I attepmted to reinstall it.

I put all my files back in the wamp/www/ directory and I go under projects on the WAMP index to my IPB folder and it gives me this error:

SQL error: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
SQL error code:

I've tried quite alot of things, but it still wants to use the 'ODBC' user (which there is none on my PHPMyAdmin, am I missing something?) instead of the root user.

Remember, I have had this installed before, and nothing has changed with my configuration of WAMP.

(Oh, and I'm going to htttp://myip:5900/ipbforums/ when I click on it under the projects.)

:whistling: .

Thanks in advance



My wamp/ folder is directly located in the C:/ folder. So the exact location would be C:/wamp/www, but I'm using my IP for it, not the location of the file.

Hi, make sure that you change the root password on the phpmyadmin file. I have similar problem, all I did was go to the phphmyadmin file and changed password, that's if you are using password for the root! If you are not, set a password and update the file.

I don't know if this might help, but give it a try!
