I am trying to install myPHPadmin using this link:
http://www.trainsignal.com/blog/install-phpmyadmin-on-iis7-and-server-2008

I completed the install step by step...but now when I open myPHPadmin via a localhost session...I get this screenshot...I dont believe that it is suppose to be asking me for login info.

I dont even have the password for this...

My goal is to use this tool to add a database for a wordpress migration. thanks

No screenshot but...

phpMyAdmin always asks for your login.  I've never seen an install that didn't except for XAMPP's version which by default only allows a 'localhost' connection.  phpMyAdmin uses your MySQL username and password to connect to the MySQL server.  Usually if it's for your local use only to admin all the databases, you would use 'root' as the username.

Note that installing phpMyAdmin does not install MySQL.  That is a separate procedure.

MySQL is a service (without a GUI) and you don't need to know where it is to use it.  phpMyAdmin knows how to connect to it.  In addition to phpMyAdmin which requires PHP and a web server, you can install MySQL Workbench as an alternative way of administering the MySQL server.  http://www.mysql.com/products/workbench/

And please, in the future, post screen shots as JPGs which will open in the browser.  Posting a 'docx' requires using Word or a Word-compatible program to view it.

The initial installation of MySQL does not assign a password to the 'root' user but you are recommended to do that.  Passwords are stored in the database along with the usernames.  You do not need to access MySQL on the command line to use phpMyAdmin.
