You should ask your hosts or on a phpmyadmin support site.

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.
