I am not an expert at xampp, and this is my first time running it, I am setting up an environment for Wordpress development basically I will be designing Wordpress sites and then linking my local host to a forwarding service for clients to view in progress work. When design is complete I will upload the Wordpress site to client server. I went into localhost xampp splash page in browser and navigated to security I setup security for mysql superuser using http on one occation and cookie on the other, did a few tries, and xampp directory protection for .htaccess. I then tried to login to http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin/ i get a prompt to enter password, I do and I'm rejected with an error - "wrong username/password. Access denied". Futhermore I am not sure what to enter for the username field, can some please guide on this. Apache access.log, apache error.log, php_error_log and mysql_error.log have long entries.
My comp details are such:
