After setting the root password for the mysql server, I couldn't get into phpmyadmin until I edited the line
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ''
Is there some xampp equivalent config file that I should change too? It is showing 'deactivated' under the status page (in fact the only one activated is HTTPS (SSL) )
Some of the demo's dont work (Could not connect to database! Is MySQL running or did you change the password?) - strangely the ADOdb demo works (I think ... "Beauty, Groove Armada, 1997) .
Any ideas? Thanks
