XAMPP on thumb drive

I installed xampp on a thumb drive. When it finished, I started both Apache & MySQL.

Then I went to Admin on MySQL. It takes me to a phpmyadmin login page; I have NO CLUE what to use for UserID and Password.

Can someone help?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The default for that is usually root/root unless it prompted you for a password during install...

even still the username is almost always root.

If you look at the 'readme' in the XAMPP root, it tells you.

Sorry, of course that's obvious, I will look.

I have become so accustomed to the current world of documentation (or lack thereof) or the Google methodology of making everything VERY difficult to figure out how to do.

Richard, was the username and password root/root? In the default?
