Hi all,

I have installed phpmyadmin on my LAMP droplet using this tutorial

but I cannot login as root user using the password i setup during installation.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Purge Mysql and install it again with a new password

  • Thank you so much !!!

    For anyone in the same boat:

    sudo apt-get remove dbconfig-mysql

    sudo apt-get purge mysql*

    sudo apt-get autoremove

    sudo apt-get autoclean

    sudo apt-get install mysql-server
