Initial install was using the .exe install, but couldn't access localhost. I followed the info in another topic and completely uninstalled the .exe install using Revo uninstaller. Then ran a registry checker to see if anything was left over but couldn't find anything. Did a reinstall using the 7zip download then I could access the local host.
Now I can't access phpmyadmin. The msg I get is #2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySLQ server's socket is not correctly configured) Next to the info icon is the msg Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed. In the xampp control panel it shows both Apache and MySLQ as running (Scv boxes are not checked. When I open localhost and click on status, it shows MySLQ database as deactivated.
I've checked the forum to see if there was any topic similar to my problem but couldn't find anything. The only info that I thought would help was on this page http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html and that was to run xampp_start.exe but that didn't do anything.
I then googled for info and couldn't find anything current, just outdated info. Since what I was finding was outdated info and I didn't want to attempt trying anything as it could make the problem worse, I'm now back here to see if this can be resolved.
