Hi

I have had problems installing xampp, so deinstalled and started al over again. I've got xampp 1.7.7, I am running xampp control panel v3.0.2. When I start Apache and MySQL and click on MySQL Admin in the Xampp Control Panel, I get the following error:
"MySQL said:
Cannot connect: invalid settings.
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server."

What should I do?

Best regards
Valerie

Have you changed your security settings from the Xampp startup page?
