Backed up my databases, uninstalled and reinstalled the new XAMPP. Copied back my databases, and reset the DocumentRoot to the directory my websites are in. I didn't select "service" for Apache and Mysql during the install, so I had a little problem getting Apache to start. Clicked the Service button and check the start control panel as service and then apache and mysql and clicked ok. Both then started up. Rechecking the service button again and only mysql checked, so I'm not sure what I am doing there. Also, I cannot check the module buttons to the left of the apache and mysql "running" items.
I am totally confused as to what should be checked or setup, especially on this service thing.
Additionally, my localhost is showing my local websites but not showing my databases. Obviously, the DocumentRoot is ok as my websites show, however I think I have a database password set on the sites, but not set with this new install. Can you advise how to set a password? Lastly, I went into http://localhost/phpmyadmin
, and it is in German. I did the transfer thing on my Chrome browser to transfer from German to English, but nothing happened. I think the password setting is there somewhere, but I can only read a little German (Had it in high school many, many years ago).
