I have just installed XAMPP 1.7.7 and using XAMPP control panel 3.0.2 on a Windows Xp SP3
When I check security it says "A MySQL server is not running or is blocked by a firewall!" and the status is unknown. But it is running and I have checked the firewall and see that the service has complete access. And phpmyadmin works. The only issue is that I can't change password.
I think that it is a problem with the port, as in the control panel it does not show any port nor in Netstat, but I can't understand why the port is not opened and it works.
I've checked my.ini and php.ini and both are right.
Thanks in advance.
