Hi !
I am beginner, recently I installed XAMPP to use for PHP programming. Everything worked well, until something happened.........

This is message I am getting trying to open PHP admin panel

Code: Select all
MySQL said: Documentation
#2003 - Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.


Both Apache & MySQL are running on XAMPP Control Panel

Let me know if you need any other logs files (please let me know where I can find them)

Thanks !

I'm getting the same problem. I'm able to access the phpmyadmin with no problem.
