Description Till Maas 2009-11-24 12:15:23 UTC
Description of problem:
phpMyAdmin requires this setting in the config file for cookie based authentication:

+/*
+ * This is needed for cookie based authentication to encrypt password in
+ * cookie
+ */
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = ''; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

But this is only mentioned in the /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/config.sample.inc.php file and not in the /etc/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
phpMyAdmin-2.11.9.6-1.el5

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2009-11-29 13:08:27 UTC
Thanks for your report. I'm tempted to solve this together with bug #540891.

Comment 2 Till Maas 2009-11-29 13:24:11 UTC
A simple enhancement would also be to add a %post scriptlet that automatically generates a 56byte random secret when the package is installed the first time.
