I am experiencing the following problem when trying to connect to the phpmyadmin site of my server:
phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in config.inc.php and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server. Error MySQL said: Documentation #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) Invalid hostname for server 1. Please review your configuration.
The problematic part is, that I do not get to enter a Password, though the phpmyadmin/config.inc.php has all values set to the default e.g. the $cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] is set to "cookie". It works, if I change the conenct_type to "http". And of course mysql itself works, too when accessed through the PHP scripts running on the server as well as when accessed through the shell.
I appreciate your help.
