We just released new versions of XAMPP for all platforms with latest PHP versions: 5.5.19 and 5.6.3. We simplified the versioning for XAMPP releases and we now base the version number on the bundled PHP version, so you can more easily tell what is in the stack."

Maybe you need to set the command "flush-priviled" with mysqladmin after that. Restarting MySQL and clearing all browser cookies could also help.Motivated wrote:Can someone please tell me how to set a secure password for my MySQL server in the new version of Xampp?
