I have copied the phpmyadmin folder into htdocs, I checked the http://localhost address and I can see the splash page.
Im using Windows XP sp3.
When I navigate to http://localhost/phpmyadmin it says 'object not found'
when I open index.php in firefox it says Firefox can't find the file at /C:/xamp/xampplite/htdocs/phpMyAdmin/navigation.php<?php echo $url_query; ?>.
When I try http://127.0.0.1/phpMyAdmin/index.php it says:
MySQL said: Documentation
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
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.
NO is not the password I specified, how do I type-in a password?
