How do I reset my root password for myPHPAdmin?

Postby tdc0373 » 02. April 2018 21:24

I am trying to follow instructions from an online course that uses an older version of XAMPP, which made it easier to locate the security settings as to set a password to access myPHPAdmin. However, the version in the course and the latest version are completely different. Long story short, I somehow managed to set a root password and now I cannot access myPHPAdmin. Can someone please help me resolve this?

Thank you in advance.

This link should help https://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-windows-excerpt/5.7/en/resetting-permissions-windows.html

Assuming that you have a clean install of xampp, the following paths should be correct

Unless your MySql programs are in the Windows path, you need to change to the directory c:\xampp\mysql\bin to run mysqld when you open up your cmd panel

Then you need to tell phpMyAdmin the new password - the file for that will be c:\xampp\myphpadmin\config.inc.php

Good luck
