Need help with user and pass

Postby SC__Programmer » 18. July 2011 22:32

When i start up phpMyAdmin it asks for a username and password,and i never created one for phpMyAdmin and it doesnt say how to make one.

i tryed using the database from my site as the username and my password as the pass,but it didnt work.

im new to this ;)

Depending on the version of XAMPP you can enter phpMyAdmin by entering root as the user and then leave the password blank and click on Go.

The default location of C:\xampp\readme-en.txt file under "A matter of security (A MUST READ!)" has the instructions to set a password for user root in phpMyAdmin and the MySQL combo.

http://localhost/security is the best place to start for this process.
