Accesing security page under Xampp (After Windows 10 update)

Hy all,

If you run into a trouble with accesing security page after installing xampp or after Windows 10 update. Reminder: You need to setup a password for phpmyadmin user, etc.

Expecially if your’e getting this error log when accesing security page:

Warning: include(lang/1%00’=1.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:xamppsecurityhtdocsindex.php on line 12 ….

Or you’re unable to access localhost/phpmyadmin with your current user/pass…

Do following steps:

  1. Go to this folder: c:\xampp\security\htdocs
  2. Locate and open lang.tmp file (ctrl+f to find and open with some text editor)
  3. Delete everything in file and write only: en
  4. Save file
  5. Access security page through browser (localhost/security)
  6. Add/Change credentials (password)
  7. Restart MySql in Xampp – Control Panel
  8. Log in on localhost/phpmyadmin with new password

That’s it!

P.S. Don’t forget to change password in CMS that uses MySQL (for WordPress you have to update config.php file with new password -> ‘define(‘DB_PASSWORD’, ‘newpassword’);’)
