This is very important setup in your XAMPP server setup, and by default xampp provide null password of root user in phpmyadmin, whenever you setup the root password, and if you are forget the password or root user, then there are no options to change or reset the root password of phpmyadmin.
In this post I would like to show you how to bypass the root password of phpmyadmin.
Whenever you change the root password, then the following error will occur on your web page.
So, follow the below steps and bypass the root password of phpmyadmin
Step 1: Stop all services from xampp
Step 2: go to C:\xampp\mysql\bin and open my.ini file.
Step 3: find [my sqld] and add the following string below [mysqld] in the my.ini file
Step 4: Now start or restart services of xampp (phpmyadmin & Apache) and open phpmyadmin, and you can see your phpmyadmin will work fine without shows any error.
Step 5: Now you can edit or set root password of phpmyadmin without knowing of current password.
I hope this post will help you to bypass root password of phpmyadmin.
