Ok I couldn't find any info about this, so I thought someone here might know what this is about.
Ive got XAMPP 1.7.2a and I want to move over a lot of old databases to XAMPP:s MySQL.
Most of the old apps depend on the root user having password 'root', so I've set all the
root-users' passwords in PhpMyAdmin to 'root'. I also edited the config.inc.php like so:
- Code: Select all
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;
Ok this works fine. I can create and drop databases in PhpMyAdmin etc. BUT, when I click
on the "Privileges"-tab I get an error message
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Oops. Ok, but that's not all. Just under the error-message there's a link that says
Open new phpMyAdmin window
and if I click on it a get a new PMA-window that shows the Privileges-tab, and now it's working!!!!
If I click on some other tab in this new window, and back to Priviliges, I get the error message
Anyone have any idea what this is?
Note: I'm running MySQL with bind-address=127.0.0.1 and I thought that
could be some issue. But removing this doesn't help, anyway.
