XAMPP is currently only availably as 32 bit application. Please use a 32 bit compatibility library for your system.

The quick solution is to install the ia32-libs library which in general – it allows 32bit apps to run on 64 bit systems.

RESET Mysql Root Password In LAMPP or XAMPP

If you are reading this, chances are you have either lost or forgotten your mysql root password and definitely in need of help!

OK – this solution assumes you have access to your Lampp installation files.

- Go to your config file: lampp/etc/my.cnf 
- Open the file and look for text: [mysqld]
- Under it, insert text: skip-grant-tables
- Restart MySQL

Now access your phpmyadmin: localhost/phpmyadmin. You should be able to log in without the need of password

You can now change/reset the root password to something else:

UPDATE mysql.USER SET Password='new_password' WHERE USER='root'
