I like to put new versions of phpMyAdmin in the htdocs folder as opposed to messing with the one that comes with XAMMP (3.1.3). I have phpMyAdmin ver. 3.1.4 and it works fine. Tonight I installed 3.2.5 and it will not connect using the same config.inc.php file as the other version. I've read all the phpAdmin docs but can't find anything I should change.
Error msg on the yellow phpAdmin screen:
Cannot connect: invalid settings.
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.
Do I have to upgrade to XAMMP 1.7.2 in order to run the most current phpMyAdmin? Or is there something I'm missing here?
(I've not upgraded because 1.0.1 runs all my "stuff" just fine.... until now!)
