    Trying to do a basic install of phpmyadmin and I am having some issues...

    I created a directory for phpmyadmin and I unzipped everything before sending it to my server.

    I also created my config.inc.php file....

    So what do I need to do now.... lol ?

    Where did you upload it relative to your document root? (the public_html directory on most hosts)

    you need to add apache alias for domain.com/phpmyadmin link to work.

    Ok i i dont know what i am suppsoed to do on these steps..


    1. Open the main phpMyAdmin directory in your browser. phpMyAdmin should now display a welcome screen and your databases, or a login dialog if using HTTP or cookie authentication mode.
    Got that but I didnt setup a username and login

    1. You should deny access to the ./libraries and ./setup/lib subfolders in your webserver configuration. For Apache you can use supplied .htaccess file in that folder, for other webservers, you should configure this yourself. Such configuration prevents from possible path exposure and cross side scripting vulnerabilities that might happen to be found in that code.
    ok...how should I configure .htaccess

    1. It is generally good idea to protect public phpMyAdmin installation against access by robots as they usually can not do anything good there. You can do this using robots.txt file in root of your webserver or limit access by web server configuration. You can find example .htaccess file which can help you achieve this in contrib directory in phpMyAdmin.
    I guess i just follow .htacess again ?

    The username and password you enter are the credentials for the MySQL server itself. Generally, when administering a MySQL server, you login as the root user. Your hosting company should provide you with the root user's password.
