Thanks - but still a problem

Hi and thank you for your speedy response.

I have renamed the site Hairformen so all folders now have no spaces ( sorry I did miss this )

Local Info now reads

Root folder is now : C:\xampp\xampp\htdocs\Hairformen\httpdocs\
Root images folder : C:\xampp\xampp\htdocs\Hairformen\httpdocs\images\

Testing Server PHP MySQL
Access: Local / Network
Testing server folder: C:\xampp\xampp\htdocs\Hairformen\
URL Prefix: Hairformen/

I have gond to the URL localhost which opens up PHP Admin

Here I am being asked for a User name and Password to log in

I have typed in root and left the password blank - and yet again I still cannot get into the Admin Panel to set up my database.

I am sorry for the confusion - I have done many ASP sites but cannot get my head around this. Hope you can help. Once I have managed to get the database into the site I am hoping there will be similarities on the PHP pages to the ASP I have always worked with.

Thank you
