phpMyAdmin login/logout

If you are wondering where the logout link for phpMyAdmin in your installation is, most likely you have the automatic login configured (auth_type is “config”) in your configuration file,

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'admin_user';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'password';

Just change the auth_type to “cookie” and you will be redirected to login page when refresh the phpMyAdmin session and you will see the logout link. 🙂
