Access denied user 'root'@'localhost' error driving nuts

XAMPP installed and running no problems.

Error occurs when I try and create a database connection.

Connection name: MyCMS
MySQL Server: localhost
User name: root
Password: ***

When I click 'Select...' that's when error displays!

Any ideas PLEASE?

How is the testing server setting in the site definition set up?

Is it pointing to the local testing server?

If so, it means the password you are using is not correct.

If memory serves, the default password in XAMPP is blank. I think if you launch the XAMPP starting page , it will show the MySQL password, or give an option to change it on the security page.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm new to all this so sorry for acting a bit dumb!

in the testing server settings, the local path is

\htdocs\TestCMS

but the web URL is:
http://localhost/webassist

the web URL should use the site folder name instead of webassist:
http://localhost/TestCMS

Oops a bit quick!

I used "Site Sculptor" to build a quick test site

Then selected the 'CMS Content' area

WebAssist/CMS/Add Content to PowerCMS

Produced the attached error !!

the error is saying:

The content that you selected to convert to a CMS Content area contains server side code

you cant convert server side code to a CMS Content area.

Mmmm Very very confused! Site sculptor created the page (see attached).

I get what you say but having spent a week trying to get 'Design Extender' working I'm being to pull my hair out. I thought it would be allot easier to implement :(

I have read and watch near all training docs but not one has a simple step guide to get things working!

Ideas?

Not frustrated at you, just with myself to get things flying

Looks like from the screen shot, there are already CMS Content areas on the page.

use the CMS Admin to mange the content in those areas.
