XP would not allow me to access my Apache2Triad Server through using http://localhost/phpmyadmin/

Recently install the latest Apache2Triad on to my Win XP professional stand  alone machine.

My problem is this:

When I open Internet browser and type in the following url to upload or get access to the server on my local machine  e.g:


The “connect to local host” security dialogue box appears and when I type in the following  “root/triadpass” “user/pass” as recommended in the readme file for Apache2Triad no joy.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Please check this out....  Not sure it applies, but just got this alert via Email.
Internet Security and Acceleration Server and Proxy Server Update for November 2004
does http://localhost work ok ?

if it does it sounds like you need to do some changes in the phpmyadmin config and/or the myslq database.

take a look at the documentation here

especially the part about
"Using authentication modes"

let us know how it works
thanks for the points :)
