Generally there is no need for setting a password for phpmyadmin because the new security concept only grants access to phpmyadmin from localhost.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

No, Apache analyses the request especially where it comes from and if the request is not sent from localhost it will be rejected.

Or do you mean the database password phpmyadmin uses to authenticate against MySQL? This is independend from phpmyadmin. phpmyadmin is just a GUI to administrate MySQL. By default there is a MySQL Administrator user named root with no password.

$db_host = "localhost";
$db_username = "root";
$db_pass = "";
$db_name = "interpage";

Yeah, this is independent of phpmyadmin.
As already said the user root has no password/empty password by default

Yes. /xampp is not any more part Xampp. There is no more "admin" page, simply run your own sctipts and files.

if you are not satified, uninstall Xampp and use a different tool. And tell bitnami about it.
