I can't open the phpMyAdmin window for MySQL on XAMP. How do I resolve this without uninstalling it? Is there a login some where?

1 Answer

Hi, well... so you cannot log into DB or even open phpMyAdmin website? It should be present it ..\htdocs\phpmyadmin - if not, download it and copy it there.

Root password can be reset like this: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/resetting-permissions.html
