I can't login to phpmyadmin,cause I have difficulty to get the Mysql password

I already install the PHPmyAdmin one-click install. But I can’t log in to PHPmyAdmin. cause I don’t know where to get this message as stated at here

Thank you for using DigitalOcean's LAMP/PHPMyAdmin Application.
Your PHPMyAdmin installation can be accessed at 
The details of your PHP installation can be seen at
Your MySQL root user's password is gNv8yafpVZ
You are encouraged to run mysql_secure_installation to ready your server for production.
To delete this message of the day: rm -rf /etc/motd.tail

Where to get this message?

As stated here:

“Your new PHPMyAdmin droplet is ready to use as soon as it is launched but you will need to log in once via SSH or by using the web console in order to access your MySQL root password.”

so where is the web console?is it click “Access console” on the Droplet page? If so, how to access that message? Because I log in and change the password already, but no message coming out.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hi there,

According to the message that you’ve shared, the PHPmyAdmin installation is available by visiting your server IP followed by phpmyadmin via your browser, eg:


What I would usually suggest is installing PHPmyAdmin manually rather than using a package manager like apt. That way you can get the latest version which contains all of the latest security patches and features. And also you have full control over the installation.

You can follow the steps on how to install PHPmyAdmin manually here:
