You already install Wampserver (any version) and I try to explain how to fix this problem.

By default wampserver will install in folder C and I’ll use that information as base of tutorial.

Open Configuration file of phpmyadmin

Go to folder :

C:\wamp\apps

you’ll see folder ‘phpmyadmin3.2.0.1‘ , value of 3.2.0.1 will be vary depend on your wampserver version.

double click that folder and find file with name “config.inc.php

phpmyadmin config file phpmyadmin error : Cannot connect: invalid settings. phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection

Change the file

Double click ‘config.inc.php’.

Original content of the file is :

[sourcecode language="php"]

/* Servers configuration */
$i = 0;

/* Server: localhost [1] */
$i++;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['verbose'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['port'] = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['socket'] = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true;

/* End of servers configuration */

$cfg['DefaultLang'] = 'en-utf-8';
$cfg['ServerDefault'] = 1;
$cfg['UploadDir'] = '';
$cfg['SaveDir'] = '';

?>
[/sourcecode]

Change $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ”; to new value

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ‘yourmysqlrootpassword';

save the file and try access phpmyadmin.
