If you installed over the top of your previous install it wont overwrite the config.inc.php with the new file from this install. It still using your old changed file.
You need to replace this and use the original file before you did any changes. You did back it up didn't you?

Here's the thing, not that directory. I backed up htdocs thinking it contained all I needed since that was the web root but aparently it wasn't enough.

You may have to reinstall again and rename the old config.inc.php file so this new install drops in the new config.inc.php file. ;)

As a general rule and worth remembering is if you change a config file of any description always back it up first. If things go wrong with your changes you can always revert.

unfortunately I learn best from mistakes. Ok I'm going to rename the config.inc.php file and try again.

same results. The domain is www.memories-forever.net in the off chance you can see something I don't. I'll be going to bed soon though, it's getting late here in the states.

PhpMyAdmin is free accessible by network UNSECURE
PhpMyAdmin is accessible by network without password. The configuration 'httpd' or 'cookie' in the "config.inc.php" can help.

You now need to change things in config.inc.php so back up this file then make the above changes.

I paste the top of mine here:
Code: Select all
/**
 * Sets the php error reporting - Please do not change this line!
 */
if (!isset($old_error_reporting)) {
    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    @ini_set('display_errors', '1');
}


/**
 * Your phpMyAdmin url
 *
 * Complete the variable below with the full url ie
 *    http://www.your_web.net/path_to_your_phpMyAdmin_directory/
 *
 * It must contain characters that are valid for a URL, and the path is
 * case sensitive on some Web servers, for example Unix-based servers.
 *
 * In most cases you can leave this variable empty, as the correct value
 * will be detected automatically. However, we recommend that you do
 * test to see that the auto-detection code works in your system. A good
 * test is to browse a table, then edit a row and save it.  There will be
 * an error message if phpMyAdmin cannot auto-detect the correct value.
 *
 * If the auto-detection code does work properly, you can set to TRUE the
 * $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri_DisableWarning'] variable below.
 */
$cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] = '';


/**
 * Disable the default warning about $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] not being set
 * You should use this if and ONLY if the PmaAbsoluteUri auto-detection
 * works perfectly.
 */
$cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri_DisableWarning'] = TRUE;

/**

 * any of the required Tables for the relationfeatures could not be found
 */

You have created a new password for root to make mySQL secure from the web? Check this is correct and if not change it as it may still be in the my or my.cnf or my.ini files as the old password you set previously.

Try also to connect from a command prompt (Start-Run-cmd.exe) with this command (use your own path to the mysql\bin directory:

cd Path:\to\xampp\mysql\bin
mysqladmin --user=root ping


cd Path:\to\xampp\mysql\bin
mysqladmin --user=root --password=rootpassword ping

I'm still working on decifering all of the text in the config.inc.php file but using the command prompt method you listed at the bottom yeilds and access denied error. Also I ran a search of my harddrive and can find no file named my, my.ini or my.cfg. I know I had a root password and I know at one point I had been given a method that from the cmd prompt would allow my to overwrite the default password with another, I just cannot remember the syntax to save my life.
