i have installed wamp on my computer and when i access phpmyadmin i
get the following error

#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

i already have xampp installed on my computer, i want to learn smarty
templates so i am using wamp for the sake of learning smarty, i do not
want to install smarty on xampp as it is already configured with other
settings so i would like to use wamp

i am using windows xp service pack 2

i have chaned the port to 81 in the httpd.conf configuration file of
wamp and changed server name to localhost:81 so i access wamp as
http://localhost:81 this works fine, from this page when i click on
phpmyadmin link i get the error

#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

i have followed the steps from the following links,30300

i have tried stopping all services and restarted wamp service  however
i am not able to access phpmyadmin but i am able to access wamp as
http://localhost:81 and any files i create in the wamp/www folder

please advice.

This is a MySQL-originated error.  phpmyadmin can't log in to MySQL.
Does root@localhost have a password?  If so, use it.  Check the
phpmyadmin for how to set up phpmyadmin to either use a password
contained in the config file or pass through the password entered
when you log in to phpmyadmin.
