In the phpMyAdmin there are two lines that specify a control user.

Code: Select all

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controluser'] = 'username';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['controlpass'] = 'password';
Delete those two lines.

Then check that the two lines for the database user.

Code: Select all

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'username';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'password';
Are set to use the same username/password pair as phpBB3 uses in it's config.php file.
