Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.
Hi all, I have just started this for the first time.
I started php and mysql and everything worked fine.
I want to make things more secure so I used the security section to set a password for mysql.
If I use phpmyadmin the password works fine but if I click the CD Collection to test it I get "Could not connect to database!
Is MySQL running or did you change the password?"
I can't work out why it stops connecting with a password.
I have looked at the console commands and cmd commands but can't seem to run any of these.

The test applications are configured not to require a password. Since XAMPP is a development environment the focus is on ease of use & features. Now that you've secured the environment, you'll need to edit the CD application script under:
and add the username and password to mysql_connect on line 4.
