This is a problem that hounds PHP developers quite often. Even using WAMP it still gives this error which confused me because I did not encounter any problems when I added a new user account in MAMP.

I did exactly the same steps when adding a new database user account in WAMP and it always gives the Access denied for user ‘root’@’localhost’ (using password: YES).

To get around this problem, it is always best to use a different user account other than root. To add a new user account with the same privileges are a root user account, do the following steps:

– click the database and go to PRIVILEGES tab
– click EDIT PRIVILEGES on the entry named user:root and host:localhost
– scroll down. there should be a login information section. in the user name field, type a new username
– set a password
– then click the GO button below it. it should create the new user account with the same privileges as the root user account.

A note to consider: Make sure you change the password of the root user account because by default the password is blank.

It is common for developers who are new to Android to encounter problems with the emulator connecting to external websites. The first thing I did was to include the

tag in my AndroidManifest.xml file which, turned out not to be the solution since my app still could not access external websites. To confirm that your app is not the culprit for your internet connection woes, try to open the browser app of the emulator and surf to any well known sites like Google.

If it cannot access it, then the emulator does not have any connection at all. To make this work, try doing the following steps in your Eclipse IDE.

  • Go to Window > Preferences > Android > Launch
  • Under the default emulator options, add this -dns-server 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4

It worked for me.
