The most basic of questions .... how do I access the phpmyadmin dashboard (fig 4.8, p 120?

I was initially able to get this dashboard using /localhost/phpmyadmin.

I then set a root password in App. A in order to use MySQL Client.

After that I wasn't able to get the phpmyadmin dashboard, getting the error shown in fig 4.9 on p121 instead, which referred me to App A to create a user.  I did this. Created a user in Appendix A, and validated it, getting the blank screen shown in fig. A-15 on p. 599.

But when I type in the URL of localhost/ phpmyadmin, I'm still getting fig 4.9. What am I missing?

Yes. To reproduce the problem ...

I type localhost/phpmyadmin/ (with and without the trailing slash) in the URL.

As I said, the access seems to have become problematic after I set the root password (ch 4, p118, not App. A as I said).

Before that I was getting to the dashboard (fig. 4.8) OK.

Do I need to add a login and/or password in the URL?

I've never had that problem, but then again, I have never set a password for the root user in XAMPP.

The following might help:



The following might also help:



If all else fails, back up the XAMPP files you want to keep, and the do a fresh install of XAMPP.
