I’m following the tutorial and on step 3 of the installation wizard Magmi is asking me for a my Database password. I’m testing Magmi on my local machine first which does not have a database password. The installer is not allowing me to proceed without a db password, it gives me a error notice:

Oh Snap! All fields in Red are required! Please check the values and re-enter them if needed.

How can I get passed this?

I put in a fake password for the db password field and ran the installer. It seemed to run successfully. I then went to /my-magento-root/magmi-importer/conf/magmi.ini file and removed the password by changing it to:

password = ""

Hopefully that will work, will update here if it does or doesn’t

It worked :)

I also removed the database password from the Magmi Admin Panel under the configuration tab.
