    These should be the MySQL username and passwords you have setup (if you have set these up already, if not, you will first need to set a root password for the MySQL server iirc, the command is:

    mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'

    obviously changing new-password to the password you want to set. Then using phpmyadmin, the username would be root, and the password what you specify here.
