Problem :

Currently I am facing many problems because of below message I have tried everything that I could, but below message is not going away:

“The secret passphrase in configuration (blowfish_secret) is too short.”

I am working on Windows, I have already restarted both MySQL, and the Apache lot of times and still facing same message. I have also tried to clear the browser history and cookies in my browser but still I am facing the error.

How can I fix the error?

Solution :

I had faced this message before. I had done lot of research on it. It is a bit tricky to fix this.

You must add a blowfish password to your phpMyAdmin's config file. You need to edit file at following path /etc/webapps/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php and after that you need to insert the any random blowfish "password" in below line

$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = ; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR THE COOKIE AUTH! */  

It should now look similar to this:

$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'qtdRoGmbc9{8IZr323xYcSN]0s)r$9b_JUnb{~Xz'; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR THE COOKIE AUTH! */  

This is with all assumes you have already correctly created your config file,

Then use below command to fix it.

cp config.sample.inc.php config.inc.php
Hope this solution will fix your issue.
