Open file on phpMyAdmin folder.

Find this line:

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pma';

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';

Go to phpMyAdmin user privileges. Then change the "pma" password.

Refresh your phpMyAdmin.

i didn't find where the file located? – GVSharma Feb 3 '15 at 8:51
It depends. If you install manually by download phpmyadmin from their website, you can find in root directory of phpmyadmin. But, if you install from package manager, let's say Ubuntu, you can find at /etc/phpmyadmin/ – mul14 Jul 14 at 13:50

my has following lines

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = $dbuser;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = $dbpass;

here $dbpass is configured elsewhere.

now searching this secret elsewhere!
