Use this command to reconfigure phpMyAdmin:

  1. sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin

Just follow the prompts to reset the root password then try login again with your new credentials.

Hi @akshaypatil09051996

You need to login with the username/password as you’ve defined in the .htpasswd file located in the phpmyadmin root folder. If you cannot remember the information, then remove the file.
