I'm running a ubuntu 10.10 server, and have installed phpmyadmin via apt so that I can easily keep it up to date.
The install went well, and I can access the site, however when I try to log in I get an error:
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
The strange part is that the username and password are correct - logging in with the same credentials via the command line interface works just fine.
Phpmyadmin was configured automatically by apt using db-conf if I recall correctly.
Any suggestions on why phpmyadmin is misbehaving this way?
