Ongoing Error#: 1045 issues

I'm a novice:

I lost my phpmyadmin access details, ... no solution I could find on the Internet worked.
Thus, I unistalled Xampp and installed a new version of it - not all could be uninstalled, but I managed to copy across a new version of what seemed to be the offending file being ""

Now I have access to phpmyadmin again via "root" as the username. I have changed the password to "1234" (for now").
I use Dreamweaver CS6 and have set-up my site as follows:
- Connect using: Local/Network
- Server Folder: C:\xampp\htdocs\websitefolder\
- Web URL: http://localhost/
- Server Model: PHP MySQL

Trying to install Security Pages and arranging Database Settings and Defining the same by selecting a database on the testing server is troublesome:
- New, MySQL Connection
- Connection Name: MyConnection
MySQL server: localhost
Username: root
Password: 1234
Select database: .... Error message: "The testing server for this site does not map to the http://localhost/_mmServerScript/MMHTTPDB.php URL. Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site."

I have no idea what that means - please help?

To note, I have refreshed the browser appropriately and reset Xampp appropriately. Thanks for your help.
