PhpMyAdmin stuck at its login screen with no errors?

PhpMyAdmin being stuck at its login screen is possibly an issue when the path to save the php_session is not set correctly.

In this condition we have to verify whether the location of the directory for storing the session exists or not or whether PHP has sufficient rights to write to it.

To define the php_session directory simply add the following line to the php.ini file:


And give write rights to the HTTP server.

Usually, the HTTP server runs as a user daemon in a group daemon. If this is the case, the following commands will work:

chown -R :daemon /tmp/php_session

chmod -R g+wr /tmp/php_session

Now restart the HTTP server.
