The latest version of PHPMYADMIN won’t allow root to login without a password, and you can only login to the phpmyadmin user.

Here’s how you work around it.





sudo mysql -u root


CREATE USER 'set-new-user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'set-your-password';

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'your-suername'@'localhost';



sudo service service mysql restart

If that fails, try this:

sudo mysql -u root
use mysql;
update user set plugin='' where User='root';
flush privileges;
