  1. In a browser go to: http://yourserverip/phpmyadmin
  2. Login with “root” and your MySQL database root user.
  3. Go to the “Users” Tab
  4. Click “Add User”
  5. For username type “openfire”
  6. For “host” select “Local”
  7. Hit the “generate” button for a password and copy and paste the password to another text document as you will need it again in a moment.
  8. Under “database for user” section, tick “create database with same name and grant all privileges”
  9. At the very bottom-right of the page, click “go”
  10. you can log out of PHPmyAdmin now
