started again from scratch.
have since learned how to use ssh server and putty
and now phpmyadmin is fine but having new problems
& cant login to squirrelmail
started again from scratch and hit the
problem on page 2 of howto
I have started another thread for this
detailing the contents of my files etc.
please take a look at that thread as I am at a loss at where i could be going wrong that early in the piece.
