In Ubuntu I have always had a login page where the user could log in and out of the phpMyAdmin console.

I am setting it up in CentOS, but do not see any way to get this same functionality.  Is there a way to set it up the same way?  Google has not produced anything helpful.

Current setup is CentOS 5.5, latest apache, php, mysql, and phpmyadmin.

In Ubuntu server if you navigate to the page 1.2.3.4/phpmyadmin you would get a login webpage.  You could log in, and then when done click exit and be returned to the same page to log in as another user.

When I set this up in CentOS and go to 1.2.3.4/phpmyadmin it instead asks for a login from the browser popup, and does not use the login webpage as the other version does.  Also, clicking exit simply returns you to the same page, still logged in.  Closing the browser window is the only real way to log out with my current setup.

there are known session issues with phpmyadmin in some browsers

I tried a few, but they all pop up a browser login instead of a phpmyadmin login page, such as this:

you should check config: /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
this is apache config file about phpmyadmin.

I have checked that file, but do not see what it would need to show the login page as opposed to the popup auth.

sorry.
Let's try one more time.
Plz show us a screenshot of password request, /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf and authorization type in phpmyadmin config.

The solution is in the config.inc.php file ...
Look for the line:

$cfg['Servers'][0]['auth_type']='http'

You get the behavior you want by changing this to:

$cfg['Servers'][0]['auth_type']='cookie'

More details about the auth_types here: http://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/pma/auth_types
