password during installation

Postby Yustme » 03. August 2007 11:37

Hi,

During installation xampp asked for a password if im not mistaking it was for mysql.

If i am mistaking, for what is that password that i gave up during installation?

I can't log in into the mysql database with that password.

Can anyone clear this up for me?

Thanks in advance!

Most of what I understand you want to know may be available in the readme_en.txt file in the root directory of your XAMPP installation.

Mine is located here:
C:\xampp\readme_en.txt
Your installation location may be different.

Post back by all means if there is anything you don't quite understand.

Take a look at the new DeskTopXampp launch control posted by ridgewood:

The DeskTopXampp launch control for XAMPP and XAMPPlite (DTX.exe)
is available here:
http://zedfiles.com/DTX/

I highly recommend DTX.

Hi Izzy,

I red that text file. They are not talking about the password which i was asked to give up durin installation.

If you open the xampp control pannel and then click on button of "Admin" in the row of "MySql".

After that, go to the tab "my.ini Setup". There you'll see some information about "base dir" , "username" and "password".

That password is the extact same password i gave up during installation.

So my question is, whats the pupose of that password?

Can i log in to MySql with that pass?

I got the latest version of xampp installed.

Thank in advance!

You have been to http://localhost ?

Click on Tools\phpMyAdmin in the left menu frame.

You will see a login screen

Enter username root

If you set a password, as you say you did, then you will need to enter that next.

(By default there is no password set for phpMyAdmin/MySQL).

To access phpMyAdmin you use the same user/pass as for MySQL.
Neat way of testing your user/pass for MySQL.
All MySQL functions can be performed using phpMyAdmin and is the preferred method.

Click on the Security item in http://localhost menu then read and follow the instructions there in relation to password setting and changing.

The link http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php will allow you to set or change these passwords easily.

Hi Izzy,

I only want to know why the setup asked me for a password and where its gonna be used for.

I know how to give up a pass for the root account and i also know how to logon to mysql database using the root account.

Do you know what that password is meant for?

Thanks in advance!
