Another problem I am encountring is that when I want to check the patch at
my local repository, pma login page appears.
Can someone tell me what is the username and password.

Thanks Michal,
As per your suggestion I used the function
PMA_generate_common_hidden_inputs() from libraries/url_generating.lib.php to
make a token for the form and now $_REQUEST works fine.
