I currently have it kind-of-working, and am trying to improve that.
Check you got all the files in Tison's post;viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9426
(I know you got one he didn't - thankyou for that)
Make sure your including the port when you type the address in.
For example; it currently works for me when using
(I changed the ports to defaults for apache & MySQL - I also changed the port in config.inc.php to 3306; does anyone know where I might need to add the info for the apache port?)
Only other thing I can think of, is I also did Tison's first step via the terminal, changing the password again (even though I got into this mess by changing the password in phpMyAdmin beforehand)
