WAMP newbie.

Want to change the blank mySQL password and ensure that other apps such as phpAdmin still work as well.

Hi,

PhpMyAdmin

- User Accounts tab
-- User name -> Edit privileges -> Change password

Never forget that it is not PhpMyAdmin that manages user accounts and passwords, but that it is a graphical interface to MySQL and that it is MySQL that manages users.
