WAMP instal problem | Forum

I have been a WAMP user for several years, installed uncountable software packages on it with little to no trouble or I figure it out.  I admit I am stumped and my time is worth more than the software is to get it right yet I wanna try it!

if go to localhost/oxwall/install  it tries and does a fine job of not finding the install.html, install.php or install anything but install.text because there is nothing there but the TXT file that says install.anything.  Your help here would do wonders for my ego not to mention moving things along for me to run this.  Thanks big time

figured that out, the .htacess file was missing!  ??


Now I get "Error: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'ozma1'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"  when I try to install.  I have removed and recreated the damned mySql 3 times and then check permissions to make sure I am not missing something and yes it is UTF-8.  Gonna loose me soon . . . .

Сf,

1. to make sure that your user has access to mysql log in to PhpMyAdmin   using  your username/password.

2.if you are installing Oxwall locally, make sure that you have specified "localhost" as value for the "host" field when creating your user.

Julius, have you given a user all privileges?

Thanks for the reply Ross. Yes I have.

Well, you're using wrong access details or you have not given all privileges to a user. These are the only two reasons why you can have this error.

Help me now change the admin file to discourage hacking. I think it's very prone the way it is
