phpMyAdmin not recognizing stated secret passphrase


Hi. I've done the necessary research and specified a passphrase in config.inc.php, but I still get the (phpMyAdmin) error, "configuration file now needs a secret passphrase," even after reinstalling phpmyadmin. All my searches give this same instruction, which seems in most cases to work. It isn't working in my case and I'm not sure what to do at this point. I'm running Centos 5.6.

Oh, also I've included an alias from /phpmyadmin to usr/share/phpmyadmin in httpd.conf

Hi,

You didn't say how you've installed phpmyadmin. If you used your package manager (yum) it should work after adding a passphrase in config.inc.php, like that:
Code:
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'passphrase';
If you used a tarball from www.phpmyadmin.net, it could be selinux that prevents php to read the config file

Regards

Well, I don't recall exactly what I did with each, but I installed phpmyadmin.noarch first AND then phpmyadmin, both via yum. Later i removed and reinstalled phpmyadmin, after which I reset the passphrase in config.inc.php. I did not use tarballs.

Was just about to try rebooting, but refreshed my browser for the heck of it first, and it works. Darn! Wish I knew what I did!
