A word about users
Many people have difficulty understanding the concept of user management with respect to phpMyAdmin. When a user logs in to phpMyAdmin, that username and password are passed directly to MySQL. PhpMyAdmin does not administer on its own (except allowing to manipulate MySQL user account information); all users must be valid MySQL users.
