The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase (blowfish_secret).
You’ll see this error after every installation of phpmyadmin.
To resolve this issue, just open config.inc.php ( or rename config.sample.inc.php to config.inc.php if you haven’t done so yet ) and change this line
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = ''; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'WnNSLe68jw7E2,P3HIN36f.6RKCJxL1W';
To generate new blowfish secret, simply hit this https://phpsolved.com/phpmyadmin-blowfish-secret-generator/?g=64292335e40d5

You’re the best, thanks.
Thanks for de generator
Sometimes your random blowfish_secret ends with \
That will result in an error since php will read the last \ as an escape code.
Just take the \ away from the available random chars and you’re fine.
Hi Per, you are right – I’ve removed \ from the presets. Thanks!
Thanks it is really useful.
Thank you very much!
