PhpMyAdmin not working on localhost (How to Easy Fix)

Xampp version:1.7.7 (installed it on external hard drive), operating system: Windows 8, installed version 4.1.7 of phpMyAdmin and copied config.inc.php from my old version of phpmyadmin to the new phpmyadmin version (4.1.7)

When I type localhost/phpMyAdmin I get the error message:

Object not found!

The requested URL was not found on this server. If you entered the URL manually please check your spelling and try again.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster. Error 404 localhost 02/13/14 17:16:55 Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.8

So I had a look in the xampp localhost welcome page http://pngwebdesign.co.uk/forum/localhost.jpg and in the security link PhpMyAdmin: Could not find the ‘config.inc.php‘ comes up, how can this be recified

Looked in my local phpmyadmin folder and the config.inc.php file is there so I really don’t understand why I can’t log into localhost/phpMyAdmin

Easy phpMyAdmin Solution

All I you to do was load localhost:80/phpmyadmin and then the browser figured it out. After that, localhost/phpmyadmin worked.
