    Hi guys,
    in install on ubuntu 19.10 phpmyadmin and during the configuration i get the following questions:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin
    reinstall database - yes
    connection method for mysql - unix socket
    mysql database name for phpmyadmin - phpmyadmin
    mysql username: [email protected]
    pw = password
    webserver - apache2
    name of databases administrator  debian-sys-maint
    when i login with user [email protected] to phpmyadmin and put in my password, it is not accepted.
    on console i do mysql -u root -p then put my password but i get Access denied for user [email protected]
    what i am doing wrong?
    maybe someone can help me with this matter..

    thanks a log guys

    Try the command: cat /usr/local/ispconfig/server/lib/mysql_clientdb.conf

    It should give you the root password.

    Ubuntu disallows root logins with phpmyadmin now by default. If you google for that topic, you will find instructions on how to reconfigure the mysql root user to allow login with phpmyadmin, or look at recent Debian 10 or Ubuntu 18.04 perfect server guides, they contain some instructions as well to reconfigure the mysql root user.
