newb having problems with databases
the website works when i make hp file and stuff like that,
but when i go to use phpmyadmin and log in as admin with the password being blank, it says i dont have permission to create databases.
and when i try to log on as my normal account, it doesnt let me log on and it says:
#1045 - Access denied for user 'cody'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
im a newb at mysql,servers,etc.
so im not sure what i should do or how i should do it so it will let me add databases.
