PHPmyAdmin Cannot connect: invalid settings.

Post by bernardo.murillo » Mon Jul 30, 2018 12:56 pm


I'm new to zesle I'm configuring a web page in my cp but when I try to connect to phpmyadmin to create the database it gives me the following error


MySQL said: Documentation
Cannot connect: invalid settings.

phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.

Best Regards.

It seems phpMyAdmin unable to connect MySQL,

check if able to connect mysql in terminal (putty or other) by following command
mysql -u root -p

you can find mysql root password in following path /root/.my.cnf
If unable to connect then you have to reset mysql root password and then save new password into /root/.my.cnf

on google you can find ... t+password
