    After installing xampp and before continuing the tutorial, follow the guidelines below.

    Note: Two things that this tutorial does not cover but should be done is to set a password for 'root' user in MySQL and changing the config file so that one can access phpMyAdmin. Once you set a password for 'root' you will not be able to access phpMyAdmin without making that change.

    First: Set password for 'root' (based on xampp v1.7.3)

    Code:
    Type into your browser address bar the following: http://localhost/security/
    It will tell you that MySQL admin has no password. Go ahead and assign a password. Write it down because you will need to change the config file for phpMyAdmin.

    Restart MySQL in the xampp control panel.

    Secondly: Tell phpMyAdmin that you set a password.

    Code:
    Navigate to c:\xampp\phpMyAdmin and find file config.inc.php
    Open the file to edit and find:

    Code:
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ”; // MySQL password
    change to

    Code:
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ‘your_password_here‘; // MySQL password
    You are now set to continue with the tutorial.
