Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I wish to set up an HTTP authentication for phpMyAdmin that does not use the existing mysql users.

I have this options for $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']

 string ['HTTP'|'http'|'cookie'|'config'|'signon']

None allows me to define an username/password combo. Any suggestions? Maybe this file can help?

http://www.phpmyadmin.net/documentation/#authentication_modes details that you would want to use 'config' authentication mode.
