Does anybody know how to configure Wamp server running on Vista and using firefox. I cannot access PHPmyAdmin. When I first installed it when I tried to go to PHPmyAdmin I just got a blank white page, after some digging around on the internet I found that my Hosts file needed to have 127.0.0.1 localhost added. After I added the above line I now get an error page as below. Welcome to phpMyAdmin Error MySQL said: Documentation #2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured) I have not been able to find any info on this. Not sure if it makes a difference but I keep my hosts file as read only.
