I have an Amazon Lightsail instance set up with a LAMP stack. I am on a Mac, so I created an SSH tunnel to my server following the instructions here: https://docs.bitnami.com/aws/components/phpmyadmin/
Used the following command:
ssh -N -L 8888:127.0.0.1:80 -i MY_KEY_FILE firstname.lastname@example.org
I retrieved my application password from the bitnami_application_password file.
However, when I went to http://localhost:8888/phpmyadmin/index.php and entered "root" as the username and pasted the password from the bitnami_application_password file and clicked "Go", it redirects me back to the login page and doesn't show any errors.
I just launched the instance. I have not made any changes to files or uploaded anything, so I am unsure as to why I am unable to login.
