New install Ubuntu 18.02
when i try to login to phpmyadmin as root get
mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/1698): Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’
i confirmed the password is right, but its like the root login is disabled, looked under config.inc.php and allow root is true as is the user set any thoughts?
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘user’] = ‘root’;
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘AllowRoot’] = true;
