I messed up my MySQL root account, specifically I deleted it!! I already spent more than one day trying to figure out how to restore/fix it and I've been able to go into MySQL by
skip-grant-tablesand then I did create a root user with ALL privileges. It seems that everything is OK until I start the service again and realize that still have no access to my phpBB forum or any other function using MySQL database.
The error message is the following:
Code: Select all
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)  An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
I already checked Google like crazy.
I know this isn't a phpBB issue but I'm recurring to you because I have no more ideas on how to solve it and may is someone around here who got some MySQL knowledge.
I apologize if I shouldn't post this here.
Thanks in advance,
