There is mismatch between HTTPS indicated on the server and client. This can lead to non working phpMyAdmin or a security risk. Please fix your server configuration to indicate HTTPS properly.
The server is using a self signed ssl certificate, however, the virtualmin virtual server that i setup after migrating from cpanel is not. (The original cpanel account was http)
So phpmyadmin url is (note “https” in first part and “http” in second part)
should this be an issue?
What is meant by the first error above?
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/1698): Access denied for user 'rapidhab '@‘localhost’
this second error is a bit of a problem…i have checked in virtualmin and copied and pasted the exact database username and password shown after running the phpmyadmin install script (it lists the install details including username and password).
