PhpMyadmin no authentication

PhpMyadmin is a free software developed in PHP to manage MySql databases.

For local development purposes only, the developer may want to skip authentication while connecting to PhpMyadmin. For obvious security reasons, do not choose this configuration on a web server.

Skipping authentication is possible if you modify / file with the following lines :

/* Authentication type */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = ‘config’; //default value : ‘cookie’
/* Server parameters */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = ‘localhost’;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = ‘root’; //type MySql user as variable value
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ”; //type MySql password as variable value

tested on PhpMyadmin 3.2.4
