2 Common errors while setting up phpMyAdmin on Mac OSX

You might encounter the following two errors while installing phpMyAdmin on OSX

  • Login without password is forbidden by the configuration ( See AllowNoPassword )
  • #2002 can not login tot the MySQL server

Here are the fixes for the above two errors.

1. Open phpMyAdmin configuration located at (phpMyAdmin Folder)/ and change

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = False; to $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true;

2. In the configuration file change  $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost'; to $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = '';
