    Default Having trouble installing on local wampserver2.0

    Hi folks,

    I am trying to install zencart on my local machine, I downloaded wamp 2.3, it shows different interface than the tutorial How to set up a Wamp5 Server and install Zencart on your PC so I downloaded 2.0 and install it again. I followed the steps in the instruction but don't see where to set root password in phpMyAdmin, so I leave the password as default blank, and then continue to install zencart, I got the following error:

    0 Install Error: Could not connect to the Database
    in:
    [DROP TABLE IF EXISTS upgrade_exceptions;]

    Can anyone give me some clues? Thank you ver much.


    I'm using zencart version 1.3.9

    Did you create database before trying to install zencart or is it that you have been unable to create phpmyadmin password etc first?

    Thanks.

    Maybe this is the reason. I thought the DB would be created during/after the zencart installation.

    The error message seems to tell me that connection has problem though because when I tried it again I also see this error:
    Connection to Database failed
    Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

    Another finding:

    When I try to open phpMyAdmin, it rejects me now:

    it opens a window with URL:http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ (I also tried http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin/, same error)

    #1130 - Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server


    How to fix it?

    Thanks

    Wamp/phpmyadmin..suggest you visit
    http://forum.wampserver.com/read.php?2,14143

    You must create database BEFORE you try and install zencart
    into wamp and or paid webhosting.

    Thank you. The problem is I can't get into phpMyAdmin now, it keeps saying:

    #1130 - Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

    Even after I uninstalled it and reinstall the wamp server again.
