How to setup database creation in phpMyAdmin on Debian

  • Posted January 21, 2014


I set up my server and phpMyAdmin according to the tutorials, and everything seems to work fine. However, after logging into pma I don’t have the privileges to create a new database. What else should be setup?

After all I remembered that I have the same “root” user for pma as for the server just with a different password. That solved it :) (Haven’t used the server for a long time.)

Alright then :) <br>It is some default “phpmyadmin”. <br>During setting up LAMP though (just checking the tutorial now) I also disabled root login remotely for security reasons, so I guess that’s the problem. But in this case how should I access pma?

<blockquote>And I logged in with the user generated by “sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin”</blockquote>That command shouldn’t create new users. What is the username that you’re trying to log in as?

Seems like no, but I don’t know where to set that up. <br> <br>I used this tutorial for installing pma: <br> <br> <br>And I logged in with the user generated by “sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin”

Does the user have permissions to do so?
