"Cannot log in to the MySQL server" without code using phpMyAdmin on CentOS7
I've set up a new CentOS 7 server with Apache, MySQL and phpMyAdmin using Digital Ocean's guides.
However, when I try to log in to phpMyAdmin via the browser, I get the message "Cannot log in to the MySQL server" without any error code.
For testing purposes I've set the IP addresses in phpMyAdmin.conf to Require all granted.
I have two accounts in MySQL, namely the root user and a user 'niels', which I gave all permissions.
Logging in to MySQL via the command line works fine for both accounts. Only the phpMyAdmin web version is doing something unexpected.
