Read the user id info on mysql and phpmyadmin. It's so much overkill. 
Don't need to secure then at all. I have inhouse development box on 
private lan and mysql has always worked just fine with superuser mysql 
id of root without password. In the previous version of phpmyadmin no 
login id was required and I was able to see my DB definitions. Tried to 
setup config.inc.php by adding statement
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user']   = 'root';  but no joy.

What is needed in config.inc.php to allow the default mysql superuser 
user id root full access in phpmyadmin?
