I am sorry if this has been posted before. I have been learning the use of MySQL and phpMyAdmin. Having followed an installation guide during an instructional course, I installed the above applications. However, the root user and password for the association between them seems to be incorrect.
I have tried removing and reinstalling, but this issue seems to follow on after the install as if there was a saved file or table containing old information regarding the previous install. Is there a way of fully removing both and all associated tables and files without having to resort to anything too drastic.
