Default Username & Password for MySQL Databases in MAMP

MAMP for Mac OS X is a great local development server for local web site development. One question that I always get asked or even forget myself is what the default username and password for MySQL databases are when created in phpMyAdmin in MAMP.

On the more recent versions of MAMP the default username for created databases is: root.

On the more recent versions of MAMP the default password for created databases is: root.

If you are using an older version of MAMP or having trouble connecting to your database, then the default password may be set to nothing, so leave the field empty.
