Help with User,Pwd to use browser. I do have root access with Dolphin su


HI,

I have Mepis 8.5 and I can access root Dolphin etc. but I cannot get past the ID and pwd panel when I try to use Firefox to see my localhost sites.

When I installed, I knew I should not have made using the browser to be password needed, but it was too late so I am stuck with it.

As I haven't used it for a while I have fotgotten the user and pwd for this area.

How can I find it or negate it so I have access once I put the localhost url in the broswer?

There is no one else touching it but me, and I thought I write it down but can't find it.

Thanks

if this is apache and mysql you can always edit them by hand in your doc root ( edit your httpd.conf ) and/or with mysqladmin

that depends on how you locked down the document root folder
hash ,password , user name ?

when you go to 127.0.0.1/??????? ( your localhost site) what pops up
a request for a user name and pass
if so then just edit how you locked that folder in the first place

Sorry to be so thick, however whilst I do have the httpd file open, I still cannot see where I should make the chnages.

The panel which comes up says 'xampp user' so I guess it will have something to do with that but I cannot see what to change.

Any more clues..

Thanks
