Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site Using PHP & MySQL 4th Edition
In the book it refers to installation of WAMPSERVER 2.0, the latest version is 2.2. Generally the installation process is the same for both. Once installed the "homepage" is slightly different with a couple more extensions in the newer version. In the post installation set-up tasks it suggests to assign a root password using mysqladmin, however I do not see how to get to that. I can see mysqladmin.exe in a bin folder inside the mysql folder in wamp, but this does not open as per the instruction. I can see how to get into the mysql (not mysqladmin) command prompt, but this doesnt allow me to change a password or assign a password there either. It also tells me to use mysqladmin -u root status and hit enter but this does not work in the mysql comand window. the instructions do not seem to match the program. I can't see that there should be such a dramatic change, so can someone advise me as to how to get thru this issue?
