did the trick.
My update from XAMPP 1.53a to XAMPP 1.54 using the selfextracting 7zip went fine, but running the update (again) from XAMPP 1.54 to XAMPP 1.55 using the selfextracting 7zip really screwed things up, the PHP version ended up fine, but phpMyAdmin was simply broken.
Well, after reading your reply to my question I noted not one, but two small icons in my processline on screen - Both Apache and MySQL was still running.
I have now joined the mailing list, so I will not get behind the wagon again with updates, and at the next update I promise to use the inside of my head also, and to be more carefull.
for your always kind, precise and fast help.
And thank you
to Apache Friends for a buttkicking piece of software
- I really love it, and can't live without it, since I got it.
