If this isn't the right forum for it, I'd appreciate if an admin could move this.
I recently installed the latest WAMPserver onto my work laptop, got it up, and tried to start developing. I can connect to MySQL through the phpMyAdmin that comes with the server, but when I try to connect through my code, it fails.
I've tried connecting both through PHP's PDO as well as through mysql_connect, and in both cases, it says access denied for the user. I've tried removing the password, putting it back simpler, etc, and nothing seems to change. I have no idea how to diagnose where the issue is. Can someone lend a hand?
