Windows version used : Windows 7 64 bit
Version WampServer : 3.06 64 bit
Apache Version: 2.4.23
PHP Version: 5.6.25
MySQL Version: 5.7.14
What color is the WampServer icon : green

Do you have access to localhost (Homepage WampServer)? Yes
is there an error message at the bottom of the page? No

Do you have access to phpMyAdmin? Sort of. Able to see login page and upon entering correct credentials see the error listed below.
If you refer to an error message, please include the EXACT wording of the error in your post:

SQL query:
SET lc_messages = 'en_US';
MySQL said:
#1193 - Unknown system variable 'lc_messages'

If you use an Antivirus and / or Firewall, please include the names of these: no
What is the full path to the installation of WampServer (eg D:\wamp\): C:\wamp64
If you have one or more Virtual Hosts defined, please show their definition(s): just local host


I left work Friday with my yii2 site hosted on my wamp server working completely normal, when i returned today i was greeted by a familiar issue (second time) where phpmyadmin gives me this error upon login and my web site wont load (assuming this is related to the phpmyadmin problem as it spits a sql connection related error ). Last time i did this i did a fresh install of wamp and copied my site over resulting in it working until the problem surfaced again. I understand that the error message usually points to the my.ini file however from what i read mine seems to be correct listing lc-messages as:

;Path to the language
;See Documentation:
; []

Writing out this question i am noticing the inconsistency between the underscore in the error statement and my file wamp is displaying.

Please advise, Thanks.

Have you set up a good strong password for your sql root user?

There are a number of crawlers that look for new sql databases and will mess with them if the password is blank or weak.

Did you check the status of your database manually? i.e. through command prompt and see if it was just a php issue and not the database?

Were there any windows updates in between the install and the failure?

Did the website continue to operate even though the phpmyadmin wasn't working?

Thanks for your replies. I am unsure of the phpmyadmin version (but it is from the latest download) right now as i am not at work but will get that here in a hour or two. The website went down as well with a sql related error. I will post back here with my versions, errors and console status asap

My website does not work now throwing this error

"SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)"

but given that status was good why would this interfere?

i am having trouble figuring out the source of the problem is, but might just go ahead and reinstall once more.

So I reinstalled wamp and its working again with my website and everything. Let me know if there is any info I could provide while it is still working. I am assuming the same issue will present itself again and will keep you updated.
