After I installed XAMP on my ubuntu 12.10 it was working fine with mysql.

I could start mysql- sudo mysql -uroot -p. I connet it using

Recently I installed phpmyadmin. When I start it it shows access denied. I got solution from web:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd stop
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start

Now I start phpmyadmin it starts but now I could not connect with mysql on terminal.

Additionally phpmyadmin database does not shows all existing databse on mysql.

CAn anyone tell me what's going on here?

I am using ubuntu 12.10
