To do so you need to follow the simple steps given below,
Note: Hope you guys have server installed in your local machine Xampp, Wamp etc. I am using xampp for the tutorial.

1.       Open the XAMPP control panel. You can open it from the Xampp directory. (eg: C:\xampp ->xampp-control)
2.       Click on the Config button on the right side of Apache and select PhpMyAdmin ( from the dropdown list.
3.       Now you need to add the connection details in the document just before the php closing tag in the following format.
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = ''; //provide hostname and port if other than default
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = '';//user name for your remote server
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '';//password
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config';
4.       Now save the document and restart the server.
5.       Open phpmyadmin (localhost/phpmyadmin/) and you can see a section on the left sidebar “Current server:” with a dropdown list. From the list you can select the remote server and do the work.
