I'm using the latest version of Xampp for windows on Vista Business 64bit and having problems with mysql.
Setting up a root user with no password works fine during installation, but after a computer restart I cannot connect anymore. I use phpMyAdmin and get the error #1045 - Access denied for user 'pma'@'localhost' (using password: NO) . I've tried editing the config file to use the "root" user settings but no luck; have tried setting up different users with and without passwords but nothing works after a restart.
I can't even connect via command prompt so it's not a phpMyAdmin error.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
