I can't figure this out. I am a new user trying to learn php and MySQL.
I installed apach2, php, phpmyadmin, and mysql all through one package -WebserverX Kit for Mac OS X at VersionTracker.com. Upon typing http://127.0.0.1/phpMyAdmin/ into my browser I get this error on the page.


The $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] directive MUST be set in your configuration file!
Your configuration file contains settings (root with no password) that correspond to the default MySQL privileged account. Your MySQL server is running with this default, is open to intrusion, and you really should fix this security hole.

Okay, I know, open the file config.inc.php and change some code in there. Well I have searched my computer up, down, back and forth. There is no config.inc.php file on my machine. I've unhidden any hidden files--its just not there. Is this becuase I installed as one package? Is it under a different name? It still lets me create tables, thus the file must exist, right? Secondly, how do I get rid of that second part (fix that security hole.)?

I am sorry if I sound impatient, I am just frustrated. For weeks I have been reading tutorial after tutorial, and ebook after ebook. I need this thing to be set up correctly before going any further. Please help. Thanks so much.

looks like you simply didnt install phpmyadmin... go to http://www.phpmyadmin.net and download it... the copy to your document root.. then make those modifications

Installing everything from one package is not really recommended...
I would install everything separately
