I have to say that there have been occasions installing PHPmyadmin that it  
wouldn't accept any other user than root.

I'd hazard a guess that it's not looking at the right port or somesuch,    
have you tried a different setting in config.inc.php here:

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host']          = 'localhost'; // MySQL hostname or  
IP address

have tried your IP address, given that you have other stuff running as  

why not run a port scan on your machine and check where everything is  
actually listening.

http://www.bluebitter.de/english.htm for a quick and free scanner (Blues  
port scan)

then we'll know exactly where mysql is and you coan config phpmyadmin with  
some degree of certainty.
