I need help with my Controluserprogramming in R, Connection using PHPmyadmin. I keep getting the message "Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed". What does this mean and what can I do to resolve the problem?

  • Log in as root in phpMyAdmin
  • Create a database called PHPMyAdmin
  • Create a user called pma and set the "host" to the hostname or IP address of your web server, make a note of the password, and grant the new user full control over the phpmyadmin database. 
  • Go to the phpMyAdmin installation directory > SQL > create_tables.sql (file name), open it in a text editor.
  • Now go to phpmyadmin database > "SQL" tab. 
  • Copy/paste the entire text from create_tables.sql into the text box and run the query.
  • Open the config.inc.php file in the phpMyAdmin install directory, and add the following lines:
$cfg['Servers'][1]['pmadb'] = 'phpmyadmin';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['controluser'] = 'pma';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['controlpass'] = '<your password>';

// Note: The list below may grow as PMA evolves and more control tables are added
// Use your common sense! Don't just blindly copypasta, look at what it means!
$cfg['Servers'][1]['bookmarktable'] = 'pma_bookmark';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['relation'] = 'pma_relation';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['userconfig'] = 'pma_userconfig';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['table_info'] = 'pma_table_info';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['column_info'] = 'pma_column_info';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['history'] = 'pma_history';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['recent'] = 'pma_recent';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['table_uiprefs'] = 'pma_table_uiprefs';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['tracking'] = 'pma_tracking';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['table_coords'] = 'pma_table_coords';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['pdf_pages'] = 'pma_pdf_pages';
$cfg['Servers'][1]['designer_coords'] = 'pma_designer_coords';

  • Save and close the file.
  • Log out of phpMyAdmin and log in again
