Hi @cpinho

Are you connecting with the same user as WordPress or root, when you connect via phpMyAdmin? Which tutorial have you followed to install phpMyAdmin - link please? And did you use the One-Click App to setup the droplet with WordPress already installed?

With your first question, i got it!!! eheheh

If i use the wordpress config file db user name and pwd, i was able to enter in phpmyadmin!!!

This was funny.

Sorry for my happiness but i’m not a developer or system guy. Just a n00b!!!

Hi @hansen

Thank you for getting back to me.

I’m using root

I’ve followed this tutorial

I really can recall if i’ve done the one click install for this droplet, as it was months ago.
