Thank you for your help.
So I tried logging in with what my username and password which is set in the apps\wordpress\htdocs\wp-config.php file. That gives me an error with the following message:
Cannot log in to the MySQL server
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'bn_wordpress'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
I also tried logging into http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin/ using the user root and the password that I had set on installation, but even that doesn't allow me to log in and presents me a similar error message:
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
Can I please confirm that the password that I had set during the installation is supposed to be updated in the apps\phpmyadmin\htdocs\config.inc.php file?
Because according to this file, my username is set to 'root' and password is set to ''. Unfortunately, even that doesn't allow me to log in.
But if I change the 'AllowNoPassword' property in this config file, I can log in using the username 'root' and a blank password.
The next thing that puzzles me is this - according to the apps\wordpress\htdocs\wp-config.php file, below is what my DB should be called along with some other details:
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
/** The name of the database for WordPress */
define( 'DB_NAME', 'bitnami_wordpress' );
/** MySQL database username */
define( 'DB_USER', 'bn_wordpress' );
/** MySQL database password */
define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'mypassword' );
/** MySQL hostname */
define( 'DB_HOST', '127.0.0.1:3306' );
... but when I have gained access to phpMyAdmin using 'root' and '', I cannot see a DB with the name 'bitnami_wordpress'.
The only databases that I see are:
Is this expected?
I also find it weird that when I open the manager-windows.exe UI, I cannot click on any of the buttons in the Welcome tab. This is not the case with Manager Servers or Server Events tab, but definitely with the Welcome tab. Is this a known issue or something weird happening with my machine?
I would really appreciate any support to move forward at this stage. Thanks again for your help.
