Troubleshoot phpMyAdmin timeout errors

If you try to import a zipped database, you might see a timeout error because phpMyAdmin takes too long to execute the script. To fix this:

  • Set the ExecTimeLimit setting to 0 (infinite) as described here.

    • Try to import the file again.

Remember to change the ExecTimeLimit setting back to its original value once the import process ends.

#1045 error when logging in

This error occurs because you probably changed the default password for the bitnami account when building a new server, and phpMyAdmin’s configuration is not updated with your chosen password value. Resolve it by following the steps below:

  • Log in to the server console via SSH.

  • Edit the phpMyAdmin config file at /opt/bitnami/apps/phpmyadmin/htdocs/config.inc.php.

  • Change the default bitnami password to the one chosen during the server build process, by finding the line below and replacing the PASSWORD placeholder with the correct value:

    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'PASSWORD';
