it seems like your mysql root doesnt have a password the error
phpmyadmin + access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
where it says password: NO
try login without a password.

else add a password for root and do the following in phpmyadmin file

$cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] = '';
note that the phpmyadmin directory is inside the root dir
so path is /var/www/html/phpmyadmin

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie'; // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)?
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root'; // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = ''; // MySQL password (only needed
