I've downloaded the most recent bWAPP from sourceforge.net and followed the
INSTALL.txt guidelines to install it on a clean Kali Linux installation (2017.3).
I use the following MySQL connection settings:
// Database connection settings $db_server = "localhost"; $db_username = "root"; $db_password = ""; $db_name = "bWAPP";
However, pressing the "Click here to install bWAPP." on http://localhost/bWAPP/install.php results in the following error message: "Connection failed: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'".
I've searched Google and it seems that other people have similar issue, but no solution is documented anywhere.
What am I doing wrong?
