I have created a password for the root in phpMyAdmin. How do I get access to www.localhost/phpMyAdmin


I have recently started learning about databases in connection with php. As adviced in a book called PHP and MySQL, I have inserted at password into the root directory in www.localhost/phpMyAdmin. But now I cannot get access to www.localhost/phpMyAdmin from my browser (google Chrome). Does anybody know where I can login with my new password?

Thank you for your answer.

First of all, did you actually install PHPMyAdmin or did you just refer to it because you thought it was going to be installed there? It’s always a simple fix if you know what you are doing.

The next step is to figure out what or how you installed it. Did you install it via XAMPP, WAMP, MAMP, or any other methods? What was the instructions that they gave you?

You cannot simply just install only a few packages and expect another package to automatically be in there if it’s an optional package from a 3rd party.
