Logging-in into phpMyAdmin
When you visit the phpMyAdmin page from the link, you’ll be presented with a login screen with Username and Password.
When you provision a server, you receive an email containing the newly created server details. In that email, you’ll find the database credentials of your server. The root username of your server is always “root“. Find the root password in your email to login into phpMyAdmin as the root user.
Also, whenever you create a new site, you also receive an email containing the database username and password specifically for that site. For security reasons, it’s always recommended to log in as a non-root user. In this case, login as the site user. Use the username and password from your site creation email.
- Always disable phpMyAdmin when not in use to minimize potential security risks.
- Regularly backup your databases.
With FlyWP’s integrated database management features, maintaining and managing your databases becomes straightforward and efficient. Remember to always prioritize security and perform regular backups for safety.
