Yes, but you are right, that is where my problem most likely is.

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

I checked all three of the other installations that I have running
here at home, and they are all set the same.

In my last successful install, I have the latest phpMyAdmin, and it
uses config.default.php.

I'm still perplexed, but I think I'm on the right path.
