As you could see the result from
debconf-get-selections | grep phpmyadmin:
# MySQL application password for phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/mysql/app-pass password phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/mysql/admin-pass password phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/setup-password password phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/app-password-confirm password phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/password-confirm password # Configure database for phpmyadmin with dbconfig-common? phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/dbconfig-install boolean true # MySQL username for phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/db/app-user string phpmyadmin phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/internal/reconfiguring boolean false phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/reconfigure-webserver multiselect phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/passwords-do-not-match error # Back up the database for phpmyadmin before upgrading? phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/upgrade-backup boolean true # Perform upgrade on database for phpmyadmin with dbconfig-common? phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/dbconfig-upgrade boolean true # Delete the database for phpmyadmin? phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/purge boolean false phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/remote/port string # Reinstall database for phpmyadmin? phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/dbconfig-reinstall boolean true # MySQL database name for phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/db/dbname string phpmyadmin phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/install-error select abort phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/internal/skip-preseed boolean false # Connection method for MySQL database of phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/mysql/method select Unix socket phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/mysql/admin-user string debian-sys-maint # Host running the MySQL server for phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/remote/newhost string phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/missing-db-package-error select abort phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/setup-username string admin phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/upgrade-error select abort phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/remove-error select abort # Host name of the MySQL database server for phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/remote/host select localhost # Database type to be used by phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/database-type select mysql # Deconfigure database for phpmyadmin with dbconfig-common? phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/dbconfig-remove boolean true
So what're these ?:
phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/mysql/admin-pass password phpmyadmin phpmyadmin/setup-password password
.../mysql/admin-pass is for
debian-sys-maint so it's generated automatically ? dbconfig-common doesn't ask any question about these passwords, isn't it ?
I've searched phpmyadmin's sources, so it might be using debconf template for databases, isn't it ? SO after that I've searched debconf sources for this template and there were these lines for
admin-pass (i.e. here), but it might be likely more effective if here would be someone who knows exactly what they mean.
