    Server error after setting password for MySQL Link to this post

    Hello,

    After installing WAMP and SilverStripe I got a warning in phpMyAdmin that there was no password set for MySQL. When I figured out how to set these for the different hosts (127.0.0.1 / localhost / ::1 localhost <--- what is this one by the way?) I went back into phpMyAdmin to see if all was well now. Alas access denied, had to change the config.inc.php file and set the password there too. This done I had access again to phpMyAdmin. Thinking everything was hunky-dory now I went back to SilverStripe CMS (localhost/silverstripe/admin) to work on my website, but no luck "Server error - Sorry, there was a problem with handling your request". Same for the website (localhost/silverstripe). I'm sure it has something to do with setting the MySQL password because before this I had no problems accessing SilverStripe CMS or the website. Tried to Google and search this forum but nothing yet.

    Hope someone out here will hear my cry for help and come up with a solution for me. I am kind of a newb so keep it simple please

    Arno

    If you changed the mysql password then you'll need to update that in SS as well in your mysite/_config.php

    Thanx a lot, updating the _config.php file in mysite folder did the trick.
