PHPMYADMIN issues please help

SYSTEM INFORMATION
OS type and version AlmaLinux 9.4
Webmin version 2.111
Usermin version 2.010
Virtualmin version 7.10.0
Theme version 21.10
Package updates All installed packages are up to date**

I changed to almalinnux in a new server… from the Centos server…

A couple of websites i’m trying to migrate over are wordpress and i could do the migration with plugins provided but I have lost the usernames and passwords, and I thought I’d install phpmyadmin and see them - but after installing it just comes up as text… not the normal module to log in etc…
Anyways I have the wordpress_mydomain.com database - how do I view in this
I went to manage databases but them what do I do?
Please help
Thanks

It’s not clear what problem you’re having, but I think you’re saying phpMyAdmin is showing HTML and not rendering the web page? That almost always means you’ve installed mod_php. You should never install mod_php. I recommend you remove it. PHP Execution Modes | Virtualmin — Open Source Web Hosting Control Panel

And, you don’t need phpMyAdmin to manage databases, you can just select the domain, click Edit Databases, then click the “Manage” button to the right of the database you want to work with.

I’d be shocked if you can just look at the WordPress password, though, surely all passwords are hashed in the database? I think you’ll need to reset the password. Reset your password – Documentation – WordPress.org

What php version are you running?

You can import db via file in the Execute SQL section.

You can swap the password hash with a known hash in the database and then login.

I can post links tommorow.
