I have xampp running fine on a vista laptop however setting it up on windows 7 seems to have issues.
I have Php working fine but I cannot access phpmyadmin at all
when I try to browse http://localhost/phpmyadmin
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Now to my knowledge by default there is not a password set, I have not set one until I manage to get everything running but at no point am I asked for a login and password so I do not even have the opportunity to enter anything.
When I goto http://localhost/security/
I try to set a password but all I get is
ERROR: The string for the user name and password must be 3 to 15 characters long. Special characters like <öäü (usw.) and empty characters are not allowed!
I am only entering a string of letters and 3 numbers without spaces.
When I look at the xampp consol the only difference between this one and the one running on vista is that the svc checkbox on the windows 7 version has a tick in it but the Vista one doesnt.
Can anyone shed any light on how I fix this please?
