XAMPP password issues [SOLVED]

Postby Seer » 22. December 2011 14:21

I am new to Apache and this so bear with me please. I installed xampp per the instructions because I plan to use it to set up severa; websites offline and upload them one being zencart. Everything started out fine and was running but I screwed up and tried to put a password on root and now when I go into the myphp it gives me a password error. I have tried uninstalling this rebootig and when I reinstall it I get the same error. Are there file in the registry that do not uninstall? I really want to learn this and just need help to get it right.

The recover part in the link above for Windows is fine but the easiest way to set a new root password is to use the page provided in XAMPP:
http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php

Also accessible from the orange Welcome (Admin) page:
http://localhost/xampp/index.php
left frame menu item Security and then follow the link in the main frame.

The solution posted by hwalher1 concludes this topic and will be closed.

Please feel free to start a new topic if you still have issues with XAMPP for Windows.
