http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/ unable to connect

AMPP by default uses http://localhost/phpmyadmin

It also requires you start both Apache and MySQL from the control panel (or as a service).

In the XAMPP Control Panel, clicking [ Admin ] on the MySQL line will open your default browser at the configured URL for the phpMyAdmin application.

If you get a phpMyAdmin error stating “Cannot connect: invalid settings.” You will need to make sure your MySQL config file has a matching port for server and client. If it is not the standard 3306 port, you will also need to change your phpMyAdmin config file under apache ( to meet the new port settings. ( becomes<port>)
