1- Exported old databases with phpMyAdmin,
2- Renamed /xampp to /xampp_old
3- Installed new xampp in /xampp
4- Imported old databases (I managed to do it with MySQL Administrator because phpMyAdmin failed this time due to collisions with default databases on new installation, and I couldn't drop any of these databases from phpmyadmin).
Finally this is how I've configured config.inc.php in /xampp/phpmyadmin/
- Code: Select all
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysql';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true;
$cfg['Lang'] = '';
Despite being root with no password, I can't manage users through the phpmyadmin GUI. I had to do it directly in the mysql>user table.
Any help to enable this tab would be appreciated.
