Hi all.
i install xampp 1.7.0 and i cannot change the password for root in mysql.
I've change the password and then i cannot open phpmyadmin
i received that error:

MySQL said: Documentation
Cannot connect: invalid settings.
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

i use privileges root@localhost and there i have change password
Type mysql4+ and i get that error.

we cannot change the password for root in xampp? may be blank? it'a a bullshit man

I think you may be the problem not XAMPP. :)

You should perhaps have used Change Login Information / Copy User to create your password instead of Change Password as you have to have a password set first to change it and in the Change Password section you can delete a password already set by selecting No password.

Did you first try and set the MySQL\phpMyAdmin password in http://localhost/security page?

By default there is no password and it has to be set first before you can change it.

So you would login to http://localhost/phpmyadmin with user root and no password - can you still do that or do you receive an error message and if so what is the error message.

Please give details of how you did all this password changing then we can see what happened.
