Cant we use environment variables or doesnt php have access to those. When I needed sensitive data I either stored them in environment variables or in file not tracked by the repo that I include. In both of those situations custom login credentials can be set up on every installation of phpmyadmin where the tests should run.
The tests can just check for the existance of the file or variable otherwise disable the part of the test suite that depends on it.
