I have followed the tutorial here to install mysql locally on mac Sierra but the phpmyadmin seems not to care creating the config.inc.php based on the above guide in the config folder which we create within the phpmyadmin folder. Instead it creates it at http://localhost level but it is supposed to be created at http://localhost/~john/phpmyadmin/config and then transferred to the main phpmyadmin folder.
I do not know if it is related, but one thing I noticed while following the steps to install the mysql is the error I got when I issued
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'john'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
Since I have followed every step explained in the mentioned page, I wonder what the problem is with my mac system.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
