I can't log into phpMyAdmin after first installation

Hi there, here is the information as required.

Windows version - Windows 8.1 PRO 64 bit
Version WampServer - Wampserver 3.1.1 64 bit
Apache Version - 2.4.27 - PHP 5.6.31
PHP Version - 5.6.31 for CLI (Command-Line Interface)
MySQL Version - 5.7.19
MariaDB - 10.2.8

The WampServer icon is Green

The active lines in the hosts files are these two.

127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost

Spybot Search and Destroy also placed lines in the the hosts file beneath these
two lines.

I have access to the localhost (Homepage WampServer).

I don't have access to phpMyAdmin and this is my problem.
When I select phpMyAdmin from the WAMP program I get as far as the login screen.
I use 'root' for the username and leave the password blank. I press go. After a
second the field is cleared and looks the same as before I typed in the password.

I have Eset Nod 32 as an antivirus, and the Windows firewall is on.

The full path to WAMP is c:\wamp64

Do you have one or more Virtual Hosts defined? I haven't set up any local websites if
that is what you're asking.

Hi,

> 127.0.0.1 localhost
> ::1 localhost
> Spybot Search and Destroy also placed lines in the the hosts file beneath these two lines.
The hosts file has absolutely no purpose to perform url filtering. There should be only the two lines mentioned above and absolutely nothing else until you create VirtualHost.
Remove all the lines added by SpyBoot and don't let this software (which is useless, if not screw up) write to the hosts file. Besides, you'd better uninstall it completely.

Do you have access to the MySQL console?
Left click icon Wampmanager -> MySQL -> MySQL Console
When prompted for "Password", press the Enter key only, as there is no password.
You should get something like that:
Enter password:

Which browser do you use?
could you try with another browser and type:
'http://localhost/phpmyadmin/'
in the address bar.

Hi there

Changing browsers helped. I changed from Firefox to Chrome.

Thanks,

Juan

Hi,

You can change the default browser used by Wampserver.
Exit Wampserver.
Edit the wamp/wampmanager. conf file
and replace the line "navigator =......" with the full path to the desired browser.
Like, for example:
;Path of the Browser used by Wampserver
;May be modfied with the absolute path of the browser exe file
;(Use / instead of \)
navigator ="J:/Com/Net/Firefox/firefox.exe"
