The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase(blowfish_secret) phpMyAdmin 4.0.9

After upgrade phpMyAdmin 4.0.9. When you login done. You will see notification below "The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase(blowfish_secret)"
you can fix blowfish_secret on /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php if you can't find config.inc.php. you can copy or rename config.sample.inc.php to config.inc.php

#cd /usr/share/phpMyAdmin
#mv config.sample.inc.php config.inc.php

 and then edit blowfish_secret
#vi config.inc.php
.
 .
   line 17
   $cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'add you cert'; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

 Done! maybe you need clear browsing data cache and cookies and login phpMyAdmin again
