I have freshly installed XAMPP 1.7.7 on my Ubuntu 11.10 Operating system. Everything is running except for the phpMyAdmin.
Upon hitting: http://localhost/phpmyadmin, I am getting the following error:
#2002 - The server is not responding
(or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)
Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
