OK I think I have now been VERY stupid....
Right, after what i said above, i decided that I would unistall teh developerside suite, and start again (as I was very desperate to get on and use it, and thought Id just go without a password for now).
Anyway, i follwed the instrcutions in th readme file, and complete these steps:
(1) Stop the Apache2 and MySQL services...
> NET STOP mySQL
> NET STOP Apache2
I then tried the next steps:
(2) Uninstall the Apache2 and MySQL services...
\www\mysql\bin> mysqld-max-nt --remove
\www\Apache2\bin> apache -k uninstall
but got an error message saying cannot detect '...' folder (or soemthing similar)
At this point i decided I'd be patient, and come on here to ask about how to use the apssword. And just now I have tried using the password as before, but now get a message saying 'ERROR 2003: Cannot connect to MySQL server on 'localhost'
I presume this is to dow ith the steps I tried doing to unistall teh program, stopping the Apace/MySQL services? How do I go about getting them running again?
Again, sorry to be wasting your time due to my stupity, kinda embaressed now, but nay help would be great (if I deserve it lol)
