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.


Well, look’t here. An online simulator that can give newbies and experienced SLR users alike how their shots would fare well based on settings in either manual, aperture-priority or shutter-priority mode.

The Camera Sim online simulator has various sliders that shows results on the fly for all settings involved with an SLR camera like ISO, aperture, shutter speed and focal length.

As I said, this is a good site for newbies and inexperienced photographers to get themselves be more acquainted with the terminologies and and understand what each of them really is all about and how they affect the resulting shots.

Currently, the simulator offers only one photo but the scenery has a moving toy fan or whatever you call that. Great for practicing shutter settings. The Camera Sim is planning to launch a better version of it so do not forget to sign up to be notified.

I personally think this simulator is great . Try it out now and tweak those settings!
