Hi @serii366

There could be a lot of different causes for this. You could start here:

If you’re still having trouble please share your Local Logs with us: Retrieving Local’s Log File

I mean, to connect mysql in terminal like msql -u root -p

My config

define( 'DB_NAME', 'local' );

/** Database username */
define( 'DB_USER', 'root' );

/** Database password */
define( 'DB_PASSWORD', 'root' );

/** Database hostname */
define( 'DB_HOST', 'localhost' );


mysql -u root -p

Have an error

❯ mysql -u root -p
Enter password: 
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES
