phpMyAdmin not working after re-formating of computer. (4 posts)

    Hello everyone!

    I'm in alot of trouble and I would so much appreciate it if you could help me out. I've been working on my first commercial wordpress-site for a few months and recently had a computer crash.
    Luckily I managed to save my files on a USB stick using safe-mode and then I formated.

    Once I re-installed my computer I copied all my old webdevelopment files to my what I believe is my old directory and tried to start the homepage again from localhost/wordpress.

    This worked and Xampp worked to.
    But inside Xampp when trying to enter myPhpAdmin i keep getting the following classic error:

    Roughly translated to "Xampp has a new security function"
    "You may only access this file through the local network (Which I am trying!)"
    "You can config these settings in the config file".

    But I do not want to config it by "allowing all".
    I need it to work in a secure way by allowing me on my own local computer to access my own local phpmyadmin!

    The big problem is I can't just re-install everything and put in my htdoc-files in my new directory. This since I can't export my database files from phpmyadmin and then import them. If I do it this way I'm left with the general settings of my new homepage but without all the text and pages that I have added.

    Please, please help!

    Thank you ahead.

    I'm sorry but this isn't a WordPress issue. You need to consult the documentation or support for your web server software.

    I guess but Im not sure where else to ask.
    Is there a good xampp forum out there?

    Hopefully someone can help me here anyway.
