I'm new at using these programs and I'm trying to follow the guide in the PHP bible to learn them. So far I have apache and MySQL running, but I have come across two errors.
The first is the access violation of LibMYSQL.dll so far I have heard that i need to change the my.ini, however, it won't stay open long enough for me to fix.
Second, I tried opening the htpasswd file in the apache bin folder and some of the other files, but the command line utility opens and then closes within a split second and I can't figure out how to keep it open.
I'm using the newest version of XAMMP. It was a clean install I have no previous versions on my computer of any of these programs.
I have windows vista home premium x64 edition (I know, vista blows)
