Where exactly did you set Username and Password? Setting username and password in the config.inc.php does not work without further configuration, you also have to change the authentication method. However, I do not recommend this setup, because that kind of renders the use of Credentials useless.

i now know what username and password i used. it was for mysql server in xampp localhost. i used cookies for authentication. should i change that? and i did change config.ini.php, but not correct settings for user nor password. should i leave them blank? that's for continued support. i'd be lost without your knowledge and willingness to share.

Please answer my question: Where exactly did you set your password? In the phpMyAdmin Interface or the XAMPP Security Console?

I recommend using a minimal configuration for phpMyadmin:

Code: Select all
<?php
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'CHANGEME!!!';
$i = 0;
$i++;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']     = 'cookie';      // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
?>
