Hi, sorry to hear that joomla has not connected to the database.
you may try these following steps and let me know then i will do the screen sharing.
shut down WAMP
wait for 30 seconds
right click on WAMP icon and run it as admin
then try to install joomla and let me know if you get any error
ok will do
if you get any error let me know the full error code or message you get
OK - same issue: message reads - I have left it on screen "could not connect to data base - connection returned number" I used user name as "root" as suggested by Joomla forum - and password XXXXX: "sunshine" but when I watch their video (utube) the process I have is differennt and I do not get to tick agreement ! - otherwise it appears to be the same intro to Joomla...
