How to import existing myfaq folders

Post by t-pussy » Wed Jul 04, 2012 8:41 am

Hello I'm a real beginner in PHP. and I want to try this:

I have a IIS running and a MySQL both working already.

I also managed to install a phpmyadmin installation on this configuration.

now I received a folder that contains a phpmyfaq strukture of a different installation.

I could not manage yet to run PMF properly I dont know why. I received an error :
The connection to the database server could not be established.

The error message of the database server:
Access denied for user 'faq'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

what do I have to do to put the folders I got into a running phpmyfaq intallation? and maybe someone knows what I am doing wrong?

thank you

looks like you used the wrong MySQL password?
