I installed WAMP 5, it all seems to be working, but when I go to localhost and see the WAMP page is says "MySQL not launched or bad phpmyadmin config". Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Tom

Dear Tom...

Just had the same problem and looking for an answer on this forum, I found your message was not been answered yet.

It got solved when I entered the correct root password in the

phpmyadmin/config.inc.php file

look for line

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'http'; // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)?
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root'; // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'PutYourPasswordHere';

My test web pages still don't work but at least I have a response from the Wamp home page. (which is satisfying at this very moment!)

Take care,. Hope that helps/
