By default, PHPMyAdmin requires a password other than a blank password. To remedy this, edit as shown below.

/* Authentication type */
//$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['username'] = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';

Make sure you seet the password in mysql.ini to nothing if you have it set to something.


You will also need to make sure that the MySQL/MariaDB root user is set to use no password.

If you have a database password set in your apps, you will need to set them to a blank password.

That is all.
