Lost passwords for installation

Postby akakillroy » 08. June 2006 15:52

I installed Lampp on my Linux box, and its installed in the opt/lampp directory, all is working perfectly, but I created a unique set of password for it, now i can't find where they are. How do i go about changing them, I can't at this point get into the localhost/xampp page (login and password) or phpmyadmin asks for a login. can anyone help. Thx

Carl

start the security script and give new PWs...

/opt/lampp/lampp security


and after this...delete the .htaccess in the /opt/lampp/htdocs/xampp/ Folder.


If you will to make a new password for locahost/xampp start the security script

Thank you! That got me into the Xampp pages, but now i can't get into the phpmyadmin pages, I deleted the .htaccess file there but now I get the regular login for phpmyadmin but the password does not work (the new one i gave it).

Thank you!

I had a similar problem. I deleted the /opt folder and reinstalled the XAMPP package from a different directory. If you do this, you'll lose any important information in the opt directory and/or config tweaks though.
