I installed phpMyAdmin 220.127.116.11 and am trying to use the server setup script (http://localhost/phpmyadmin/setup/index.php
), but cannot get it to work because it does not seem to have write access to the "config" directory that I created in the "...\htdocs\phpMyAdmin\" folder as described in the documentation. I receive the following error in the setup: "Cannot load or save configuration...Please create web server writable folder config in phpMyAdmin...".
Here is what I know already:
1) I could use the sample config.inc.php file and manually edit it. I am actually using it semi-successfully, able to access the phpmyadmin.
2) How to make the config folder writeable in XP on the cmdl with "attrib -r +s config" and the setting of the UseSystemForSystemFolders registry key per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326549
3) This question has been asked before on this site, but never solved (http://tinyurl.com/n7smva
I'm guessing that since the folder is the localhost folder htdoc it may be an apache server write access issue; Can anyone help me solve this?
