I can't change the password for some reason of phpmyadmin

Hi,

I can't change the password for some reason of phpmyadmin therefore I can't login to control the databases:

user: raca
password: secret

Still it won't sign in on phpmyadmin giving an error of wrong password for username root. Any other place besides the file I'm editing that could be good to edit?

Thanks,
Pablo

You need to change the root password in MySQL FIRST. The password is stored in the database itself. Making that phpMyAdmin change only gives the program access to the database.

If you have not done so, 'root' will need a password. I'm unsure how 'raca' got privileges?

How to change password:

Read the FAQ:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/faq-xampp-windows.html

or

In the xammp\readme_en.txt file is the syntax to do this from the command line, or use the utility found at http://localhost/security/.


Good Luck
:)
