Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Open up the PHP Config File Config.php (File name can vary) where the MySQL DB connection details are entered.
Change the machine source name, user name and password as per the current system config.
If still not fixing, go to the PHP line causing the issue and echo the connection details, and see if correct values are there.

I am trying to use Joomla on my own computer and can not access the ''local host'', I have installed Xampp, am using windows vista, have a router between me and the internet.

To access "localhost" you must have a web server ( IIS or Apache - IIS is the simplest and is found in add/remove programs, Windows components usually) running on the PC that Joomla is installed on. You must also use http://localhost for it to work. Localhost means you are only doing a loopback to your own pc for testing purposes. By default most web servers run on port 80 if the port is changed then you must use "http://localhost:port". Depending on how your network is set up - If you have a router or firewall you may also have to "open" or do a port forward to port 80 for the software to see the server holding the Joomla pages and also allow internet access as a server. First try the default web page the server has usually default.htm or index.htm as http://localhost/default.htm etc, if it loads then you know localhost is functioning, then try the Joomla page you want to see using it in place of default.htm. If no page loads at the start - then check your Apache(Xampp) configuration file to be sure it is set up and working properly - if I recall it is hhtp.conf open it with notepad to configure and save as "all files" not text. You might also check your Joomla configuration options as well to be sure the correct port and location are used for serving pages.

Hi, Have you checked your security permissions on the 2003 IIS ?

Are the users using it as Intranet or Internet?

Is the site internal/external or possibly firewalled with rules restricting correct port operation and access permissions?
