Local root directory question

Hi Folks, I have a small problem, I went to security tab on my server and I set up a root password.

I also set up a password to protect the root directory an XAMP and now it wants a user name and password.

I know my password, I just set it up.

What is my user name, can anyone help me out.

Thanks.

Unless you specified a username, I think “root” is what you want.

Do you see any .htaccess file in your ROOT directory ? if so view the file.

Thank you very much for repplying.

It was as simple as deleting 3 files including the .htaccess one.

Thank you.
