Question

PhpMyAdmin won't log in and doesn't display any errors!!

PhpMyAdmin keep refreshing when I attempt to log in. I know my username and password are correct (I was able to access the mysql console with it), and my sites are still able to connect to my databases. The only difference in the page after I hit the ‘Go’ button on PhpMyAdmin is that the URL has a ?token=[something] after it, and the password field clears; no error messages are displayed. I tried reinstalling phpMyAdmin from apt-get, but that didn’t fix it either.

Could Someone help me resolve this issue ??

You might check that PHP can properly write session files by checking the PHP session.save_path setting. You can look in that directory and you should see a file created when you open a new browser and attempt to log in to phpMyAdmin.

I had the same problem with PhpMyAdmin a few days ago.

Check file system disk space usage by typing the following line into a terminal window:

df -h

If you see Use% ~ 100%, it’s time to free up some disk space, so that the session files can be saved.
