I'm using phpMyadmin and can't seem to log into the mysql server. I'm using the http authentication method. I've setup a control user - as per the documentation.txt that comes with it. I've created a 'root' user with 'password' and i can connect to mysql with the password but still i can't connect to mysql via phpmyadmin!!! Any hints/help please?
When you set up MYSQL, did you do something like this:
1. Install according to BINARY_INSTALL.TXT
2. Do chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql
3. Go to /var/run
4. mkdir mysqld
5. chown -R mysql.mysql mysqld
6. Start the server - mysqld_safe --user=mysql & in the /usr/local/mysql/bin/
7. Type in mysql -u root mysql
8. At mysql> prompt type
set password for root@localhost=password('yourpass');
[root@StefanLinux rylan]# mysql -u root mysql
Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 3 to server version: 4.0.16-standard
Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
mysql> set password for root@localhost=password('yourpass');
This works for me... I am assuming that is what you did BEFORE trying to setup PHPMyAdmin?
