I installed XAMPP on my Win 7 computer. I had it previously installed, I uninstalled it because of issues with Joomla.

Now I'm trying to create a new database using phpMyadmin. See attached. How do I get it to let me create a database? It did before.

Thanks

You have to login to phpmyadmin as root. I'm guessing you did and it's something else, but I thought I'd mention it.

In the XAMPP documentation you can read, that MySQL have the user "root" with no password. Then in the security script you change this none password to something else --> the next time you use MySQL you must use the user "root" with your new password. That's all, there is nothing special to do after the security script.

BTW:
You can find the MySQL documentation at:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/index.html

and for phpMyAdmin:
http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/docs.php

Very strange things going on.

I had odd error message from Win 7 about terminating a program; I could only get out of it by <ctrl><alt><del>; Win 7 tried to start in safe mode.

XAMPP was gone; no longer installed.

I re-installed it (worked normally), started phpmyadmin & created a database; no problem.

So ???

Most likely the earlier installation was corrupted due to some reason which caused unexpected Win 7 crash most likely due to MySQL but could be due to Apache as well.
