cannot login to fresh install of phpmyadmin

I instaaled phpmyadmin from virtualmin yesterday. I did this because i could not find a way to import tables from another server. Now i am viewing the phpmyadminscreen of a virtual server via webmin ( because no dns yet while the original server is still up and running ) and phpmyadmin is refusing all passwords. What can i do

Howdy,

Just to verify, you’re using MySQL usernames and passwords rather than system users, correct (assuming they’re different on your system)?

The usernames you’re trying, can you log in from the command line using them, such as with “mysql -u USERNAME -p”?
