    I have just been looking at the hp mp8000r, aswell as the software such as mediacat, etc.
    Not sure whether these would be more suitable

    Right, I've had another go at xibo as I've heard its fairly straight forward once you have the server done?
    I've not managed to get that far..
    I have followed the guide on Xibo site and installed XAMPP
    When I click on the MYSQL Admin tab, like the guide says, it come up with and error screen which reads:
    Error
    MySQL said:

    The connection could not be established due to invalid settings.
    phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server is set up, however, has rejected the connection. You should check your settings for the host, username and password in your config.inc.php and make sure that the information that you received from the administrator, meet.

    Why is this?

    & If I try to access the http://localhost/xibo it says

    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
    04/07/12 16:27:00
    Apache/2.2.21 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.2.21 OpenSSL/1.0.0e PHP/5.3.8 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.1

    Any help??? Or should I go for the paid software option?

    Thanks

    Go to start - run and type services.msc. Make sure the mysql service is running

    Yep, it says on the xampp control that it's running, I've tried stopping it and running it again... Still the same message

    I'm guessing here as not ever used Xampp before (i use linux hosts) but open up the config.inc.php file and make sure the settings are correct namely the user/password. PHPmyadmin doesn't tend to live the password being blank on my linux hosts - did you leave it blank?

    Well it all worked fine when I first installed it, but the guide said I needed to changed the password on the settings do the MySQL opened up fine at first (apart from being in German) & I changed the password like was asked... The next step was to go on the localhost/xibo but that didn't work.. So I tried to go back on MySQL and it just says that now...

    Ok - well it probably hasn't updated the password in the config.inc.php or didn't change the password. if you open it up it will be in there either way.

    what security permissions are set on it? if you can't open it, it could possibly be that PHPmyadmin can't read it either. take a look online and see if there is some documentation as to the correct permissions - I presume something like read/write for www-data (if its the same on windows as linux)

    It's because it can't open the file... Ive opened it with wordpad & seen the password bit empty do I've input it & saved but it's not made a difference.
    Would uninstalling it all make a difference?

    possibly but it depends if it will actually remove the files - I would set the permissions on the file to everybody read on that file first to test.

    When I'm home i'll boot my vm and install XAMPP and have a play - I'm not 100% sure how its works - out of interest what OS did you install on? Win 7? XP?
