phpMyAdmin-2.5.0


1. How can I do something of this?
"It is recommended that you protect the directory in which you installed phpMyAdmin (unless it's on a closed intranet, or you wish to use HTTP or cookie authentication), for example with HTTP-AUTH (in a .htaccess file)"

2. i'm trying to set a password in config.inc.php but then I get this:

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 2.5.0
Error
MySQL said:
Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: YES)



what to do?

Is this a fresh install? How did you start up the MySQL db? If you just want to get started you might want to try starting the db with the safestartmysql script...
