Navigate to where you installed WAMP, find the phpmyadmin folder, and edit the config.inc.php file. You'll see a line like the following:
Code: [ Select ]
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';

If it's commented out, uncomment it. Then fill in the single quotes with a password of your choice, so that it looks like this:
Code: [ Select ]
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'yourpasswordhere';

Save the file, and launch phpMyAdmin in a browser. You should now be able to login with username 'root' and the password that you specified.
