I have downloaded and install XAMPP 5.6.21-0 on a mac OsX Lion. Total beginner here.
Apparently it is working. Apache is running and I started mySQL.
Since it is first time I was exploring the pages in localhost and I found the phpmyadmin. I couldnt connect when mySQL was not running but when i started it, I could see a control panel.
No problem so far.
It said that it was unsecure and that I should set some password so that is what I did following the instructions
No problem there
but now everytime I want to see that nice control panel in the phpmyadming it says
Welcome to phpMyAdmin
MySQL said: Documentation
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.
Well I guess it is obvius since now it has a password but how do you "check the host username and password" and how to I configure that??
Thank you very much for any help you can give me
