First .. if I decide to have XAMPP and WAMP installed, and then turn on one services at a time by hand (for now) is there any potential clash of significance ? I am thinking of doing that to see if MYSQL loads properly under WAMP.
xampp installed at xp-pro in d:\xampp
Apache server starts fine
MySQL database decactivated"
And then I try to start MySQL from Xampp control panel
MySQL Service started"
(but it does not start)
Try Browser :
"Welcome to phpMyAdmin
#2003 - Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed."
"Could not start the MySQL service on Local Computer.
Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly."

Only shows this once though.
Run Currports from Xampp control panel
Shows port 3306 open
Mysql 3306 free
Windows Firewall off
Firewall Online armor paid shows no problem, and same message when Firewall temporarily deactivated.

One answer about "controluser" message was:
this is only a phpmyadmin warning message.
you have to update the password from pma user with the new
My config.inc.php file (untouched, unmodified) has
/* User for advanced features */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pma';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';
It is hard for me to know if that is applicable, I have a pure, unmodified Xampp install so should not have to mess with passwords, yet.
Other suggestions here and there:
Clear Firefox Browser Cache (done)
Remove, deactivate IIS
"I've resolved this by removing the my.ini file from the windows directory! "
Am I missing something very basic ?
Your suggestions ?
Thanks for any assistance.
