    Question unable to secure access to phpmyadmin

    Let me see if I can explain the problem I'm having.

    I installed PHP and mysql on my machine running Windows XP, and IIS as a webserver.

    Then I downloaded and installed phpMyAdmin to administer the mysql server.

    When I don't touch the configuration file and have no password protection, I can access the phpMyAdmin.

    However if I try to put a username and password in the config file, then after entering the correct username and password on the phpMyAdmin webpage I get a Windows pop-up prompting me for a username password. Now since I am logged on as the machine administrator, I haven't configured any users or passwords for my machine, so I have no clue what username/password to enter at the windows prompt. Anyway, at that point I am unable to access the phpMyAdmin.

    I don't know if I was able to explain the problem clearly.
    If anyone has run into this and can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks.
    AA

    Are you sure that its a windows login prompt? Or is it an HTTP authorization window(screenshot attached)?

    I think it may be an HTTP authorization window :-S (boy do I feel like a retard).
    Anyway, do you have any ideas on how to get it to work?

    I think that appears when the username/password that you type in for phpMyAdmin is wrong. Are you sure you are typing it exactly as you have it in the config file?
