If you installed phpmyadmin using apt-get then your mySQL Server should be installed with the user root and no password.

If you installed manually by downloading the phpmyadmin files and installed on a web server you will need to install mySQL.

apt-get install mysql-server

then run

/etc/init.d/mysql start

this will start your mySQL Server. Your connection details will be

User : root Password : <blank> Hostname: localhost Port : 3306

You can create a database by running

mysqladmin create <dbname>

Once you have done this your config should look like this

$dbhost = “localhost”; $dbuser = “root”; $dbpass = “”; $dbname = “<dbname from above>”; $display_errors = false;

I highly recommend you set a root password on mySQL however and never run queries as root unless creating new databases or adding users.
