Hi, i've installed phpmyadmin today on my server. My server is working like a charm, so i write http://localhost/phpmyadmin in konqueror and it shows the index page of phpmyadmin. I type my username (root) and my password. But it shows me back the index page with errors. Here are the errors.

Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at /etc/phpmyadmin/ in /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries/auth/cookie.auth.lib.php on line 353

I've heard about something that could be wrong with my encoding, i choosed 8859-1 when i installed my system. I've used tasksel so it installed postgresql, mysql never asked me about encoding. But it could be something else ? :eek:

Any ideas ? Thanks !
