Error 1045 phpMyAdmin on Window XP localhost

Hi,

I am trying to install phpMyAdmin on my Window XP system. Apache server and PHP works fine and MySQL works fine by itself.
This is what I have done
1) I downloaded a  phpMyAdmin-3.0.0-english and unzip it in my root directory (Where all my php scripts are saved).
2) I have searched online and followed couple of different methods but so far no luck.
2a) I have went into http://localhost/phpmyadmin/scripts/setup.php and followed using the script method "http://minitutorials.com/apache/phpmyadmin11.shtml"
3) I also tried to manually setup by creating a config.inc.php file but no luck.

Is there anything that I should know or missing. Please guide me as I am a total beginner in setting up MySQL and phpMyAdmin..

Thank you,
S.M.

I must admit It's not very easy to configure them, i may suggest xampp or wamp to be installed as they are bundled...

Well try for the followings:

/* Authentication type and info */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'MySQL'

Which php.ini is used in apache (check phpinfo())
Check the error log of apache. What is written there? Also check the php.ini if extension=php_mysql.dll is present.

Moreover, from phpinfo() could you show us the path my php.ini file resides...and set the mysql lines as localshost, user_name, password...And restart the apache service

Hope this helps...

No need...Sorry, if the above is not present, phpMyAdmin will give a different error; cannot load mysql extenstion...Our case is authentication based...

Hi jazzllllove,

Thanks for all the solution.. I actually just figure it out. It was that i didn't remove the config.sample.inc from the phpmyadmin folder. Instead I had both config.inc.php and config.sample.inc file inside the folder.

Thanks again
