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?
