Hi and thanks for your reply.

I am using XAMP. When I try to log in as "root " which is clearly stated as a super user in your "logging into a database " article - I am not allowed in. It says Root does not reequire a password - so I am entering root as user and leaving the password field blank

The site is set up correctly as per your other aricle - except my XAMP is in the folder
c:\xammp\xammp\htdocs . It is not a powerstore site so I have not applied this path.

Indeed I have set up a site called Hair for men as follows

c:\xammp\xammp\htdocs\Hair for men\httpdocs\

This is where my php files are stored. Under httpdocs - I have added a folder called data - and the SQL database is in the data directory

c:\xammp\xammp\htdocs\Hair for men\httpdocs\data\

I should in theory be able to log in and browse to this file - shouldnt I ?
