The whole page is worh a read.Practice 4: The XAMPP upgrades
When individual components of the XAMPP collection are upgraded, we will bring XAMPP up to date as well. However, some developments are not compatible to our last release and so we cannot upgrade these elements. Usually we are able to update all servers and programms in XAMPP. NOT the configuration files because you could have modified them. Tip: If you have the installer version it is much easier to use the installer upgrade. All others should take the (7-)ZIP archive. Extract that package in the XAMPP folder directly and overwrite the older files.
There is no upgrade to 1.5.3a. You need to do a clean install and copy over your backups to the new install.jcpahman77 wrote:I upgraded from 1.0 to 1.5.3a. phpmyadmin let me in at first after the upgrade and all the databases apeared intact, but now it won't even let me into that.

(1) There is no upgrade available for this version because the security leak problems described by Thierry Zoller can not be solved.
I tried this (just now) and it doesn't give me an error message or anything but it won't let me log in with the new password. I'm worried that there may be an old password that I have forgotten.Izzy wrote:Here is what I did.
Go to the Security page from the XAMPP Welcome (start) page and Click on:
You will see text boxes for Root - Super user to add or change the password.
Leave Current Password blank
Add a New Password
Select Cookie Authentication
Click on Password Changing.
Now restart your mySQL services (although this is not usually required).
To check things look in xampp/security/mysqlrootpasswd.txt it should have:
mysql user = root
mysql password = ThePasswordYouCreated
You can also check this file before you start the above proceedure.
Now try and login again with root not pma as pma or any other user has no permissions to do anything until you grant them to it using the super user root or you create a database under that user.

Not really as the file I asked you to check above xampp/security/mysqlrootpasswd.txt is checked for the root password.Izzy wrote:
The config.inc.php will always show a blank password for root.
