I kept getting a message that the root user was using default security and it was a security issue, so I created a new user and deleted the 2 root users. Now I get this message:
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.
Problem is, I don't know where to check the host, username and password in my configuration. I'm just trying to open http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ and I get the error message. I've changed the passwords on the security page for the root user (which seems to be a default) but it does no good. I've tried reinstalling the entire XAMPP package, and it did no good either.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
