    There really is not an install to it. persay.. it's just an extract the files..

    I think the new version has you setup options via web for how you wana access your databases.. i just did mine (user / password form, sessions w/ cookies)

    I read the Documentation.html didn't get it. and yes the readme says to open Documentation.html for install instructions. Not much help on that part even though i'm a noob.

    Look in the config file, guess you like 3 options to do it, IIRC.

    1) download it
    2) unzip it
    3) edit config file (it's all fairly self explanetary in there as it's well commented)
    4) upload

    If you've got some decent control panel access to your webhost, just use a .htaccess file on the PMA folder

    I believe he is talking about MySql Creds, not just general access creds.

    The steps I took were:
    Install phpMyAdmin 2.6.4-pl3
    Modify the config file to use cookies and set any other default variables that need setting (I NEVER put a password in the config file)

    Then I log in as my main account (root by default, but your host may have something else) then from there I go to the permissions page and set up users and passwords.

    I have installed 4 different versions of phpMyAdmin and the most recent version has never worked for me. I don't know what's up, but I follow the instructions to a "T" and it refuses to log me in. I have since given up on the new version of phpMyAdmin and just use the command line for admin tasks (which I know is not an option for you at the moment)

    I just thought I'd throw this in there before people kept harassing you about the simplicity of phpMyAdmin... because for me, the recent version was such a horrible setup process that I just gave up. (my only guess is they forgot to mention some obscure permission setting somewhere in their manual)
