phpmyadmin login screen but not connecting


I installed my PHP5, the cli, etc. MySQL 5.1, and phpmyadmin.

The phpmyadmin screen comes up but I cannot log in. No message. A little status bar flashes by red on the lower right of the window, but no other messages.

I can access MySQL via the command line
mysql -u root -pthepassword

I can see and access the phpmyadmin db and run queries from the command line.


I can run <?php
print phpinfo();
?>
http://localhost/phpinfo.php

And everything looks fine.

There seems to be some communications break down between the db and phpmyadmin. And no informative error messages.

Seems like you've already checked the basics. Take a look in the Apache log files, to see if it's returning anything that might give you further clues. Also (as this is something that's bitten me before), you don't happen to have any script-blockers on your browser, do you? NoScript gave me errors on some of my software, and it was the LAST thing I checked.
