So it has been a long time since i set up WAMP. All I have done is go to privileges in phpmyadmin and create a localhost password. I tried going to the config file and creating a password for root but I got the 1045 error and it's slipped my mind on how to fix that. So i changed the root password back to nothing. In the /www/ folder i made a folder names test123 and put an index.php file in it. In the php file I have..
When I run that in the browser what prints on the screen is exactly that..
any help? and if anyone could help me with that 1045 error too I would appreciate it.
Are you setting WAMP up manually? I've got a tutorial that I wrote on the subject on my site... it's probably out of date, but may help you figure out the problem. Chances are the problem is the changes to Apache's ini files.
I got the php fixed. apparently I needed to make the server online. I swear all i had to do before was click start all services though. Anyone who can jump in to help with the 1045 error feel free though lol
