Error Message Received. Cannot access phpMyAdmin

wordpress

#1

Help! I can’t access my database through phpMyAdmin to change user password because going through WP admin isn’t working (password resets aren’t being delivered) and keep getting the following error messages:

#2002 - php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known — The server is not responding (or the local server’s socket is not correctly configured).

mysqli_real_connect(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known

mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/2002): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known

I’m unable to reach anyone over at Dreamhost Support as their Support Chat was offline all day. Hopeing anyone can shed some light on the issue for me.

Thanks in advance!

You are trying to change a wordpress users password through phpmyadmin? Don’t do that. The field is encrypted anyway, unless you’re very experienced in what your attempting to do it’s only going to lead you to more frustration.

Is “password resets aren’t being delivered” the real problem here? That is, your users can’t receive the email required to reset there password? If that is the case, that’s the problem we should be addressing but there isn’t enough info here to help you with that.

After I change the password for my “root” in phpMyAdmin page, I had a same problem and also looking for the solutions from the internet but fail to get the answer I needed, so I check the documentation inside the phpMyAdmin directory.

Go to and edit the file

\modules\phpmyadmin414x140123114237\config.sample.inc.php
look for line

$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘auth_type’] = ‘config’
and change the ‘config’ to ‘http’ and that will allow you to type the user name and password when you go to your phpMyAdmin page using your browser.
