I'm not sure what version is in the OP's installation. Current
MySQL/MariaDb only allows (mysql) root login from a (host) root login
i.e. not through phpmyadmin at all, ever. It is necessary to login as
root on a terminal on the server, and set up another mysql admin account
in order to use phpmyadmin. But if you try root through phpmyadmin, you
will be given a clear error message. Seeing no phpmyadmin at all means
an installation (or apache2) problem. Apache can also be a fussy beast.
