Can't access phpmyadmin ...

I had installed WampServer 2.2 for several years. Today I installed WampServer 3.0.6 (as administrator) following the documents in this forum related to the install propcess step by step. Everything worked well and my WampServer icon is green after starting WampServer. But when I try to start phpmyadmin thru the link at the localhost screen, it comes up with the error message 'The requested URL /phpmyadmin/main.php was not found on this server.' and the version number of the phpmyadmin version I used previously with WampServer 2.2 is displayed as title of the tab in my Firefox browser ('phpmyadmin 3.2.0.1 - localhost'). I also found out that the file 'main.php' is missing in the install directory 'X:\wamp\apps\phpmyadmin4.6.4' of phpmyadmin. The other tools (adminer4.2.5 and phpsysinfo3.2.5) are both working.

The error described above occurred during the first test immediately after the 'out of the box' install with NO modifications applied.

Here are the configuration details of my system:

Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 (64 bit)
WampServer Version 3.0.6 - 32bit
Apache Version: 2.4.23
PHP Version: 5.6.25
MySQL Version: 5.7.14
phpmyadmin Version: 4.6.4

Relevant lines in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts:

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

I have access to the 'localhost' page of WampServer.
Starting of phpmyadmin ends in the error message described above.
I have McAfee AntiVirus Plus installed with activated firewall.
Installation directory of WampServer is: X:\wamp
I have NO Virtual Hosts defined except 'localhost' (as 'out of the box' default)
I have created NO projects yet.

I have no idea what to do and how to fix this problem. Please help me!

Thanks in advance
Nick

MySQL 5.7.14 / 5.5.52 <=> PHP 7.0.10 / 5.6.25 / 5.5.38 / 5.4.45 / 5.3.29

Hi,

Quote

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
Uncomment IPv6:
::1 localhost
as Mysql connect in IpV6 most of the times.

Hello Otomatic,

thank you very much for your quick reply!

A simple trick and it worked well; but as always you need to know it :-)

Now I can go on, create a Virtual Host and import my existing project.

Best regards
Nick
