Hello there, I've got an oddball problem and I just can't seem to figure out how to solve it.
I have a test server running Apache under Windows XP Pro. It also has mySQL and PHP5 running on it. I'm pretty sure those are working since I have a webCalender and Forums that use both PHP and mySQL to store the data.
The problem is, I want to get into more serious web development, and that means creating my own databases. I'm familiar with "easy database design" such as via Microsoft Access and SQL Server, where one can easilly and graphically create tables and whatnot, and I want to do the same with mySQL.
So... I hear everybody telling me "you need phpMyAdmin!" which is fine and dandy. I download it, I install it, I try to get it working....
Every time I load the main page, I get a "PHPMyAdmin Error: PHPMyAdmin cannot read your configuration file!" It tells me I am probably missing a ; at the end of a line or something and gives me a link below to click to see the problem.
I click it, I get a blank page, which means there is no problem. No error line, nothing. About the only thing I even changed in that file was the server address.
So.... what am I doing wrong? Has anyone else had this issue? I've tried everything in my arsenal... set Windows permissions to "full access", paths in the env variable paths, etc....
Thank you for any help you can provide.
