only on one account, when i open phpmyadmin it gives me "Wrong username/password. Access denied." All other accounts login fine. I didnt change anything and this started happening about a week or two ago. I downgraded to mysql 3 and still same thing. I upgraded to mysql 4 and ran mysql script fix and still get same message. Any ideas.

Another issue with same account.

This started happening awhile back. All of a sudden the account disappeared from the "List Accounts" menu. It shows the account as inactive, but everything for the account works fine, webpage, cpanel, etc. (well, until the phpmyadmin issue stated above started last week) This is the account I use personally. Why would it all of a sudden become inactive and how can i make it appear in the "List Accounts" section again?

We have seen this if you try to access it from a bookmark withput first having logged into cpanel. The variables for username and such are not set which is what can cause this error.

I have the same exact problem with a customer account. It was working fine and then one day, he called me to tell me that his Cpanel PHPMyAdmin was saying "Incorrect User/Password". Go figure.

ok, i think i found the fix.

Everything cleared up and was working fine until just now. I go to check the phpmyadmin and it gives me wrong username/password message.

I logged out of cpanel and back in and it seems to have cleared up.

Ronny, are you logged into the website that the phpmyadmin is for? If so try logging out and then log out of cpanel and back in.

Are you loging in to cpanel with the user password, if you use the server or reseller pass phpmyadmin will block you.
