It looks like you are not connecting because of a user name/password
combination. Typically, Windows does not use root as a valid login as do
most other operating systems. Try using your login information to see if
you can connect to mySQL using the GUI. I suspect you'll succeed. The
other option would be to use the mySQL admin user name and password. One
of those should work.

Once you can connect to your database with the GUI, you can then use PHP
to call the mySQL database connect strings and manipulate your data as
necessary. The DBD/DBI is a more generic solution that allows you to use
a standard coding structure in PHP (or perl) and easily change databases
underneath. For a small implementation, this isn't necessary. There are
other database abstraction layers that perform the same function.
