This is not known to Xampp, the correct name is phpmyadmin instead. Try to enter http://localhost/phpmyadmin in your browser (or simply click on that link)

Sorry, i do not understand what you mean by that, Obviously, http://localhost/phpmyadmin does work (or not?), so what are you going for??

??

I still do not understand.

You can develop und run your own PHP/HTML files, and thats it what Xampp is mentioned for. What other "setup" are you thinking about? The idea of Xampp is to provide a server environment on localhost, so you can run your tests before uploading it to an onine server.

It is already setup and running. SImply use it in your PHP Scripts.

There is a huge PHP Script already pre-installed by Xampp, it is called the PhpMyAdmin Script, this is a sophisticated script for maintaining your MySQL Database. This is a GUI which lets you create databases, tables, users. Enter http://localhost/phpmyadmin in your browser.

BUT: normally you would not have to use that, because many PHP Scripts (like Joomla, Wordpress, SMF Board, and and and....) create the tables and databases on their own, you only to provide the valid credentials in the Setup Procedure of these tools. The access data for MySQL in Xampp is:

Servername: localhost
User: root
Password: (none)

There is already a database "test" installed, you may use that or create a new one (with the help of PhpMyAdmin). If you would like to give "root" a password (some of these Joomla and Wordpress things do not like empty passwords) instead of no password, you may also do this PhpMyAdmin, but BEWARE: if you change the root password, you also must change config.php.inc in the phpmyadmin folder, otherwise you cannot use PhpMyAdmin any more.
