I installed Silverstripe 2.4.2 on Windows XP Home and using Wamp. Everything seems OK but I can't get phpadmin to work; whatever i do phpadmin is asking for a root password but i left this blank. The message i get also indicates password=NO but it will not open phpadmin. Do somebody have any idea how to get this fixed?

Modify 'C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin3.2.0.1\libraries\config.default.php'...

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;


$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true;

This solved my problem; phpadmin is working now!

I modified the file as you mentioned but in this file the comment states: 'Don't edit this file'. It looks like this comment is not correct.

Anyhow, thanks for your help

Yeah I think you are supposed to overwrite the config settings elsewhere :) but I've hacked up phpmyadmin enough that I don't think about it now.

As an example I've modified... 'C:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin3.2.0.1\libraries\auth\cookie.auth.lib.php'... to add the user 'root' for one click login...

<input type="text" name="pma_username" id="input_username" value="root" size="24" class="textfield"/>
