I installed PHPmyadmin on my server and configured it. The problem is, it logins automatically as root. It doesnt ask the user to specify the user and passwd. this would be a major security lax. How do i overcome this??

checkout the config file: i dont know it extremely well but look for the "auth" commands. it is explained pretty well in there.
