Hi,

Check the /opt/bitnami/apps/phpmyadmin/htdocs/config.inc.php file if there is your root password there.

Hi Beltran,

So I checked the config.inc.php file and try all the combinations of the user name and password. When I use administrator as user I at least get in, when I user root as user it does not let me in. I started up mysql from command and and did a query for all user the only user that show up are (root 3 times) and (bitnami once). Does that help?

Thanks for getting back to me.

It is strange. You only need to access using administrator and you have access to the database as root user. Could you post the exact ami that are you using?

Thanks Beltran, it all works! However I do have another question for you.

How do I change my url to point a directory instead of the bitname home.

Just figured it out, I just changed the document root in the httpd.conf file to point to my drupal htdocs folder.

Right, I’m glad to hear you fixed the issue.
