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.

    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
