    This sucks but I do know how you can fix it.. ok Changing the user and password from root in the Xamp settings along is going to cause the program not to be able to connect to the folder that contains the user information. Stupid design I know

    I do not know about xamp becuase i use Wamp but if you look through one of the main files that holds the admins names and passwords you are going to see that the users did not change. I know it has to do with the setting in a main file for phpadmin (which right now you shoudl not be able to connect to either)

    I will look into this and see what I can find out if it aint solved yet when I log back on
