2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.


am unable to access the ems
replying incorrrect pass and username

Check Your user name and Password.

I have set $dbpassword = ""; for both dbsettings.php files....but when I try to create a new user from the admin panel it gives this error Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES). Ofcourse I don't use a password for my root user. Are there any other files that contains the variable $dbpassword so I could set it to empty, other than the two dbsettings.php files?

DT...tyring to interest my school to use an automated exam system, can you please send me a demo of a good one and quote.
