Parameters of phpMyAdmin

Postby moni17 » 03. January 2017 18:50


To make a DB rules, do I need to leave the :
"$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';" in doc as "cookie" to get into phpMyAdmin ?
For future DB, do I need to do always the same way?
If I change to parameter "cookie" as originally "config" I cannot get into phpMyAdmin,
sorry, but why ???

auth_type is for logging in with phpmyadmin. Not sure what that has to do with setting up DB rules.

With "cookie" you are prompted in a login dialog for a valid userid and password. if you use "config" instead, you are not prompted for userid an password, instead phpmyadmin uses the values for userid and password as they are applied in

With "cookie" the setting of userid and password in is ignored, you must enter valid data in the login dialog. After then phpmyadmin tries to login to MySQL with this Userid/Password. If you do not enter valid data, login will fail. The default user/password in a brandnew Xampp installation is "root" and no password (leave it empty).

Last not least, i have no idea what you mean by "DB rules"?!
