It's been a week figuring how to set-up my localhost server with LAMP (I'm using Fedora 15 KDE)  and encounter an issue on phpMyAdmin when browsing using http://localhost/phpMyadmin it is asking for username and password, even though i didn't set-up password on mysql. Finally it's just a short tweak on config file to access the mysql using phpMyadmin.

1. You need to be root and access the phpMyAdmin config (

2. Look for  AllowNoPassword

3. the current settings for that is FALSE, you need to set it to TRUE.

now, test to browse the phpMyadmin onto your browser just type the username: root and leave your password to blank. Hope this will help, for those you encounter the same issue same as mine.. :)
