  1. You mentioned Mongo in the beginning of the article. Do you know the best way to get 3.x mongo in opensuse 42.1 and on?

  2. @2daygeek, here is the error message. It is inside my first post,

    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.

    1. @Guru,
      Can you please make the below change
      from ($cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘auth_type’] = ‘config’;) to $cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘auth_type’] = ‘cookie’;

      Also make sure you should update correct password.
      $cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘password’] = ‘password’;

  3. Hi,

    I am getting error on my phpMyAdmin online GUI webpage. When I go to
    http://localhost/phpMyAdmin, I am getting this error below.

    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.

    The only change I did is that I upgraded from MariaDB 5.5 to MariaDB 10.1 just recently. I tried root username and password. It did not work. I tried every step. I even changed the root allow without password inside config.inc.php file. It did not work. Any suggestions as to How can I fix this. I am using opensuse 13.1 and mariadb 10.1

    Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance 🙂 I have been trying to solve this for 3 weeks.

  4. Hi
    Great article helped a lot.

    One point you can just use yast and put ‘lamp’ in the file search bar, much quicker.

  5. Thanks a lot for this really helpful guide!

    Just a little comment: At the end of 4., you want to open localhost/phpinfo.php (the file that was just created), not localhost/index.php
