I have Ubuntu, and installed the phpMyAdmin package (currently 4:3.3.2-1). Every 30 minutes, it asks me to enter my username and password, for inactive session timeout. In earlier version of phpMyAdmin, setting a user/pass would entirely skip this login form and keep the session open indefinitely. This installation is on a dev machine (single user on closed private network) and I want to disable, or bypass that login form so I never have to actually input the user/pass again. I tried fiddling with the configuration files (there are like 3, not even sure which one is used) but nothing seems to change.
I've followed this thread : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=743991 which brought me to this thread http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=499399 but there is no clear directive on how this be be solved.
config.inc.php on my debian instalation i can find it at
auth_type and add in the first element on the array like this
$cfg['Servers'] any data (like a host in
$cfg['Servers']['host']) need to auth.
Add this lines before first
for statement in
$cfg['Servers']['auth_type'] = 'config'; $cfg['Servers']['host'] = 'localhost'; //edit if you have db in the other host $cfg['Servers']['connect_type'] = 'tcp'; $cfg['Servers']['compress'] = false; $cfg['Servers']['extension'] = 'mysql'; $cfg['Servers']['user'] = 'root'; //edit this line $cfg['Servers']['password'] = ''; // edit this line
