Problem :

I keep getting a below error with mysql connection through a XAMPP and I really don't know what to do:

Mysqli_real_connect(): (hy000/1045): access denied for user 'pma'@'localhost' (using password: no)

I have already reset my password from a MySql from a command line three times and added a changes to my code and to my php.ini file, but at each time it goes back to a error. Any help on this issue?

Solution :

In your terminal, log into the MySQL as root. You may have created the root password when you had installed MySQL for a first time or a password could be blank, in each case you can simply press ENTER when prompted for your password.

 sudo mysql -p -u root

Now add your new MySQL user with a username of your choice. In this example we are reefing it as pmauser (for the phpmyadmin user). Make sure to replace the  password_here with your own. You can now generate a password here. A % symbol here tells the MySQL to allow your user to log in from anywhere remotely. If you wanted to heightened security, you could replace it with the IP address.

CREATE USER 'pmauser'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password_here';

Now we will grant the superuser privilege to your new user.


Then go to the config.inc.php ( in your ubuntu, /etc/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php )

/* User for the advanced features */

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pmauser'; 
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = 'password_here';

Sometimes we get to see this error “mysqli_real_connect(): (hy000/1045): access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: no)” while we try to connect to our MySQL in xampp. This error message means that the connection to the database is not correct or you may have set different passwords for the user 'root' or have changed your password.


There are many ways to solve this problem. Let’s see different ways of solving this problem.

Change your configuration file:

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';


$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'HTTP';

Or, we can use:

/* Authentication type and info */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';<----your password

Or, We can change:

/* User for advanced features */

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'pma';

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = '';


/* User for advanced features */

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'your user';

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = 'your password';
