If you have ever had a problem to login to phpmyadmin with root you will need to add the rights.
login to mariadb/mysql:

mysql -uroot -p

check if user is added:

SELECT User, Host FROM mysql.user WHERE Host <> 'localhost';
Code language: HTML, XML (xml)
MariaDB [(none)]> SELECT User, Host FROM mysql.user WHERE Host <> 'localhost';
Code language: HTML, XML (xml)
+----------+------+ | User | Host | +----------+------+ | librenms | % | +----------+------+

Now add the root user:

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'YOUR PASSWORD' WITH GRANT OPTION;
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

And now flush:

flush privileges;
MariaDB [(none)]> SELECT User, Host FROM mysql.user WHERE Host <> 'localhost';
Code language: HTML, XML (xml)
+----------+-------------+ | User | Host | +----------+-------------+ | librenms | % | | root | % | +----------+-------------+
