I can't log into my instance of phpMyAdmin via cookie authentication using Google Chrome. I keep getting bounced back to the login page with a warning about cookies.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS server, MySQL server 5.1.41, Apache 2.2.14 and have just downloaded phpMyAdmin 3.4.4. I'm using Chrome stable (13 currently) on Mac OS X 10.6.8 as browser.
I have done the setup using Setup Script provided with phpMyAdmin package, using cookie authentication. However when I navigate to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/index.php to login, after submitting the form it is redirected back to the login form without error message or indication of any kind.
I have tried clear all browsing data from Google Chrome settings and loaded
/phpmyadmin/index.php again. There was an message saying "Cookie must be enabled" but this only shows up once, disappeared after refreshing. Login is still a no go.
I've tried Safari 5 as well with the exact same results (including the cookie warning message). Firefox 6.0 login was successful though.
After I have tried a change to "config" authentication (by putting "root" and password in config.ini.php Google Chrome is now able to login, but have no privileges to create databases.
Finally I have to do the database setup with command line.
What could be the problem here?
