phpPgAdmin problem

I use the following url to access my phpPgAdmin installed within xampp:

http://localhost:8080/phpPgAdmin/

This was working perfectly on my windows machine until today
The url now gives me :
http://localhost:8080/phpPgAdmin/
The requested URL /phpPgAdmin/ was not found on this server.

Can some one please tell me where the port 8080 is defined for the phpPgAdmin
I cannot find it anywhere
again, the install is using xampp

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
It is not defined for 'phpPgAdmin', port 8080 is defined for Apache and XAMPP.  If you type in just http://localhost:8080/ , you should still see the XAMPP main page.   'phpPgAdmin' is a PHP program that runs under PHP on Apache and uses the same port as everything else on the server.

The error message is telling you that either the 'phpPgAdmin' directory spelling has changed or perhaps the 'index.php' that is used to dispatch the code is missing or renamed.

Then try http://localhost:888/phpPgAdmin/ .  Apache / XAMPP runs PHP and 'phpPgAdmin' so they should be on the same port.  They are on every installation that I have.  PHP and 'phpPgAdmin' are not able to independently receive requests on a different port.

Apache is running the network service where the port is defined.  It passes requests on to the different programs like 'phpPgAdmin' that are running on the server.

Already tried this:
http://localhost:888/phpPgAdmin/index.php

I get:
Object not found!
error 404

If I try the pgAdmin 111 GUI it cannot connect to the server on 5433

Ok, this shouldn't be this difficult.  It never has been here.

Try http://localhost:8080/  and tell what you get.
Try http://localhost:888/  and tell me what you get.

Port 5433 should be the port for PostGreSQL.

Did you mean http://localhost-8080.com/?
Search Google for localhost 8080

http://localhost:888/xampp/:

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
In my install, there wasn't a default password.  This page tells about it: https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/4D958A35.8030501@hogranch.com  Since you are on Windows, you don't need to use the 'sudo' command to become an 'administrator' though you may need to be using an Administrator account.

There looked to be a lot of problems with my installs
I have now reinstalled the database servers and postgre phpPgAdmin (there was nothing important in the previous databases) and all looks good now

One final question:
Have you needed to export a set of mysql database tables using phpMyAdmin on windows and import them into postgres using the phpPgAdmin software
I get errors when doing this
I was wondering if you know of a good converter to use

I did that once a couple of years ago when I first set up my test box.  I do remember struggling with it but not the details of fixing it.  I think I found out I did it wrong once I got it working.
