Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'

I’ve recently had 2-3 sites within Local start returning access denied errors for the root MySQL user. I’m unable to access the database in any way since this has started happening.

Hi Gabe,

Sorry for the trouble!

How is this error presenting itself? Is the site not loading at all? If so, I’d recommend trying the steps I posted here: [RESOLVED] "Error establishing a database connection"
