    Exclamation phpmyadmin & mysql problem

    I just recently installed phpMyAdmin on local computer for testing purposes. However, I am experiencing mysql connection on it. I used root@localhost but it's telling me that I couldn't connect to the database. But I know that both my username and the password are correct, so I thought that the problem might be from the hosted server, maybe my sql isn't connected to localhost or something? I am really new to this so I couldn't be sure, is there a way to tell what server the mysql has from the mysql console? Or are there other ways to do so?

    Where is the MySQL database you are trying to access located at? Is it on the same computer as your PhpMyAdmin install?

    I would say to make sure that PhpMyAdmin is looking at the correct place for your MySQL database.
