phpMyAdmin installation

Threaded View

I am trying to install phpMyAdmin 2.8.2 and have a question about  Is it necessary to include all of the $cfg fields in  
config.default.php, or is it ok to just have whichever fields I  
explicitly need customized, such as $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']?  I  
am not clear on whether there are any security risks by not explicitly  
stating every field in config.default.php in my actual  
and whether or not the program will know to default to variables I don't  
state, even though everything seems to work fine without all of this  
info.  I could not find this info anywhere in the phpMyAdmin  
documentation, which talks about setup.php but doesn't clarify if I need  
every field.  Thanks in advance.

You need every field even if it is blank or default.

Just copy config.default.php to and change the values as  
appropriate.  Nothing could be simpler.

Re: phpMyAdmin installation

I suggest you use the setup.php as described in the documentation, then
copy the file to the main folder.

You also need to run the SQL script to create tables used by
phpMyAdmin. I suggest you  create a seperate database and call it
phpMyAdmin. run the SQL script to create the tables there.
