PHPMyAdmin Default login password
I have done a fresh installation of Fedora 14 and installed the phpMyAdmin module. When I run phpMyAdmin, it asks me for a username and password.
What is the default username and password for phpMyAdmin?
Username: root Password: [null]
The Password is set to 'password' in some versions.

I just installed Fedora 16 (yea, I know it's old and not supported but, I had the CD burnt :) )
Anyway, coming to the solution, this is what I was required to do:
su - gedit /etc/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php
if not found... try phpmyadmin - all small caps.
and set it to:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = TRUE;
This is asking for your MySQL username and password.
You should enter these details, which will default to "root" and "" (i.e.: nothing) if you've not specified a password.
If it was installed with plesk (not sure if it's just that, or on the phpmyadmin side: It changes the root user to admin.
