php admin dead - Please help!

Postby soccertainer » 11. August 2009 14:53

Can someone please tell me how to get around the below error when I click PHPmyadmin in XAMPPError
MySQL said:
#1130 - Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
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.

You have changed some MySQL privileges (or my.ini settings)?

Hi thanks for responding, yeah I changed the password, it was blank, I changed it to a six letter password, but now I can't even get back in to remove it. Can you advise how to get back in? When I click phpmyadmin I get the message I posted already. Thanks

I changed the password,

If you change the password for the user "pma" in MySQL, you must also adjust the phpMyAdmin configruation (config.inc.php).

Hello again, I found the file and I've been messing with the password but I can't get it back. Is there a way to reset XAMPP to default?

There is a "resetroot.bat".
