MAMP Access Denied - phpMyAdmin issues - Following WordPress Track
I can't include pictures ?! That's TERRIBLE ! I had no clue. I guess i'll try my best to do so without them.
This is the following error that I get when I attempt to open MAMP's phpMyAdmin panel.
Welcome to phpMyAdmin
MySQL said: Documentation Cannot connect: invalid settings.
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.
I had already searched Stack OverFlow / YouTube / Forum posts and I could not debug this. Partly because I got plenty lost in peoples' solutions.
What I had done was that I created (2) databases because the first one had given me an error in either User / Pass / Host name when attempting to finish the WordPress download. I proceeded to create another database to access and ended up with this.
I understand that I had created a new username and password. I don't believe that I changed any root user or pass. I had refreshed the page and all of a sudden this came up.
I had also uninstalled MAMP from everywhere and reinstalled it.
