MySQL root pw change, reinstall, and still it doesn't work..

Postby akisma » 17. December 2007 02:18

OS X Leopard, most recent XAMPP build.

I had everything working just fine with XAMPP and its components for about a year until I decided to fix that little security issue of not having a root password. After I added a root password, phpMyAdmin and MySQL both complained about not logging in properly, or having connections rejected, and sent me searching the message boards here for an answer. I found one; or so I thought: change the config files to reflect the new password. Duh.

Except it didn't work.

I reinstalled XAMPP, and things are better without the root password being set (other than for this computer), but I'm still having no luck with PhpMyAdmin. Here's the error message generated by visiting localhost/phpMyAdmin, and following that, the error from the error_log.

phpMyAdmin - Error

Cannot start session without errors, please check errors given in your PHP and/or webserver log file and configure your PHP installation properly.

Can anyone in the world help me? I'm just trying to get my work environment working again so I can catch up on the work I've missed as a result of this. I'm at my wit's end.

Thanks!

hello,

uncomment "session.save_path = /tmp" in your php.ini, resart xampp and it should work.

if session.save_path is not set php normally uses /tmp by default. Maybe MacOS needs session.save_path = /tmp explicitly? But the folder has to exist and must be writable by the user php runs under.

Under OSX php use normaly /var or so but these are not writeable on mac os x leopard, so it dosn't work

Did the session.save_path = /tmp thing, didn't work. Do I need to modify the read/write properties of that? what would be the path?
