Hey there. I just installed phpMyAdmin on my server, but it isn't asking for login information. Clearly this is an issue since anyone can access my database online.

How do I modify this?

Thanks,
DaVuLf

You;ll want look for the config.inc.php file in the root of the phpMyAdmin folder and look for the following:
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']     = 'config';

Change conf to http. Now goto access phpMyAdmin again. You should now get a promt requesting authentication.

If you cannot find config.inc.php. Goto libaries and find config.defualt.php, copy that to the root of the phpmyadmin folder and rename that file to config.inc.php, now follow the instructions above.

Thanks. I tried this and now it is prompting for password. Unfortunately, it isn't recognizing the proper inputs as correct. See here:

I want it to show up like that. The HTTP prompt is a javascript popup it looks like.
