    When I go to localhost and click on phpmyadmin i get the folling msg You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server.and don't know how to fix this. I have followed the installation process from the WordPress installation guide. My system is 64 bit and running Windows 8. I installed it previously on a 32 bit system running windows XP sp3 and the installation did not have any errors or problems. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Are you using WAMP (Windows Apache MySQL PHP) or what server are you using?

    Just use 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost (no changes to the configuration file are required).It might work.

    <a href="http://127.0.0.1/phpmyadmin/">127.0.0.1</a>

    Still not working.

    When I did the install it did not ask me to establish a databsase like it did on the 32 bit version.

    Received the this error with your suggestion,

    Error

    MySQL said: Documentation
    #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
    phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

    Where will I find the file for this information - host, username and password in your configuration

    Is this a really fresh install and you did not set any password in the install routine? By default the password should be empty ''.

    Try the following:
    Go to your WAMP installation directory, e.g. c:\programs\wamp
    There should be a folder named "apps", in there a "phpmyadmin" folder.
    Find the config file here, should be named config.inc.php.
    In this file there is a line beginning with $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ''
    If there is anything between the '', remove it.
