I'm trying to set-up the fresh phpMyAdmin install on my Debian 6 server to use http authentication rather than the cookie based auth that is default when it is installed.
To do this, I edited the
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] line to use
'http' as its setting in
/etc/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php, and restarted the server, but the setting seems to be being ignored, as when I goto phpmyadmin, it is still offering up the regular login box.
I've done this twice before (once on debian and once on ubuntu), so I'm not sure why it isn't working this time.
