    MAMP won't accept my mySQL username and password
    ok I've got MAMP "up and running," but I am pretty frustrated with this new problem...

    A friend who I am no longer in touch with made a blog for me using php and mysql. I want to learn how to use these languages enough to tweak my blog, so I backed up my whole website, then downloaded and installed MAMP.

    All HTML files are in htdocs and working fine, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to access my blog. I have used phpmyadmin to set the passwords to what they originally were and nothing is happening.

    I always get this error:

    "Cannot Connect: Access denied for user 'MYUSERNAME' (using password: YES)"

    I have asked for info on other forums and people refer me to mySQL "Getting Started" help files. I read them, and still don't know what to do. Can someone please tell me: How do I solve this specific problem???
