Xampp 5.6.11 on windows

Postby nilsur » 13. August 2015 14:44

Hello!

I've been trying to install xaamp for php development with netbeans. I've been using uniserverZ until now, but i decided to change because i was not able to run it with netbeans.

After installing xamp, apache seems to work fine, and mysql works too. But the fact is that i can't change the default mysql database passwords, and my php apps are unable to connect it.

The control pannel does not appear in this xampp new version, but if i go to the security directory it seems to be some files missing and the aplication to change the password don't work.

I tryed to reinstall xampp but the issue persists.

Can anyone help me? I definitly need it!

Thank you a lot.

Don't use the security scripts of xampp to change your database account. Use phpmyadmin or the MySQL CLI.
The old security code is many many years old and is no longer maintained.
Bitnami has simply forgotten to remove the security scripts too like they have already deleted the old orange administration page.

I have written a Frequently Given Answer for how to set a root password:
