Answer

Hi there aeonsleo.

Go to this file in: WampFolder\apps\phpmyadmin[phpmyadmin version]\config.inc.php

Usually wamp is in your main hard drive folder C:\wamp\

You will see something like:

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'YOUR USER NAME IS HERE';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'AND YOU PASSWORD IS HERE';

Try using the password and username that you have on that file.

Hope it helps.
