This error displays when you try to log in to phpMyAdmin:

To troubleshoot this error, you should complete a password reset and make sure you're using the correct database host name. For more information, see Managing Databases and Viewing Your Database Details with Shared Hosting Accounts. We also recommend clearing your cache and cookies.
