For access to the XAMPP area (http://localhost/xampp/), the username is lampp.

It says some where there, but it's easy to overlook. I had trouble with that when I switched to Linux.

You are right, thanks. The user for the demopage can be found on another page (imho a little bit confusing;-).

Yeah, I wondered why that was done that way myself. It should be done the same way as Windows or make it clearly stated in the XAMPP security window.
After having the same problem, I found the page you linked to and solved my own problem, but it definitely should be addressed.

For those native to Windows, it's difficult enough switching to Linux only to have that adding to the learning curve. Hehe.
