The phpMyAdmin password is the same as for root, they share the same password, and is usually set from http://localhost/security as defined in the \xampp\readme_en.txt file.

If you want to remove the current password for root and start again then there is a bat file resetroot.bat in the mysql folder.

You may need to edit this bat file following the instructions here:
viewtopic.php?p=167128#p167128

After editing and saving the bat file...

...make sure that mysql is stopped then run the \xampp\mysql\resetroot.bat file then restart MySQL
Now try and access phpMyAdmin using root user with no password.

If successful then create your password again and retry.

You can set the new root user password for phpMyAdmin/MySQL from the Security menu item in http://localhost/security/ select the link under "To fix the problems for mysql, phpmyadmin and the xampp directory simply use", after running the above bat file to clear any existing passwords.

You should really post in the correct forum XAMPP for Windows in the English section here:
viewforum.php?f=16
It could be a quicker place to get a response. :)

Good luck.
