More questions =)
I recovered from my mistake by copying all xampp files from a fresh install and recreated my SQL database from scratch, I just started, the amount of data was zero bytes.
But if I forgot my database login info, is there any way to recover them?
Which files are important to backup? And which SQL file(s) are that? (config.inc.php, ..... )
I used the shell command mysqladmin.exe -u root password xxx
With this shell command I changed the root password from nothing to xxx.
I changed the config.inc.php to reflect this password xxx
logging in from browser: http://localhost/phpmyadmin
works without problems.
But if I try to change the password to something else with the shell command, I get an error that I cannot to the server'.' failed.
error message: access denied for user 'root' @ 'localhost' (using password 'no'
Is there another file which Xampp uses to store passwords?
