I admit, I've blown it. I downloaded the AppServer(PHP,Apache,MySql combo pack) to impress my cousin .
The installation went beatifully(in Win2k professional).
All was working well, and I was showing my cousin how to administer using PHPAdmin. I set a password for root at localhost to show him how easy it was.
Now, PHPAdmin refuses to execute saying there is an authentication error(No.145, if it helps
). I even tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the whole pack, but PHPAdmin simply refuses to start. With it goes my great scheme to pull my cousin towards the world of open source.
Any help at all will surely be useful.
