I cannod install phpmyadmin. The installation process fails with the following error. I can normally log in to the mysql database. What should I do? Normally I would expect "(using password: Yes)". What is making apt to not to bother to give the password?. I am using Debian 9 installation that is pretty fresh and installed on a clean hard drive.
I have copied the innoDB storage from the previous installation and the database has imported these (together with the mysql database)
Additionally AFAIK "dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server" should ask for root password. In my case nothing happens - command quits after one second.
