Solution for Forbidden /phpmyadmin : You don’t have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server

Previously i had wamp version 2.0 and there it uses phpmyadmin 3.* version. Now i need to use wamp version 2.0c and it came up with phpmyadmin 2.* versions. After installing wamp 2.0c i could not access http:// localhost/phpmyadmin and it says

403 Forbidden
You don’t have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server

I solved this problem in two step :

Step 1 :
Check your   c://wamp/apps and remember the name of your phpmyadmin folder (i.e phpmyadmin2.11.6)

Step 2 :
Open in notepad c://wamp/alias/phpmyadmin.conf

and edit the following

<Directory “D:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin2.11.6/”>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order Deny,All
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1

</Directory>

with this :

<Directory “D:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin2.11.6/“>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order Deny,Al
Allow from all

</Directory>

And also verify that the directory name matches If not ,

1. change the directory name (<Directory “D:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin2.11.6/“>) and

2. also the Alias name (At the top of this file ie.  Alias /phpmyadmin “D:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin2.11.6/

**After going to the phpmyadmin I set my root users password which is null by default . After doing this the next time I tried to login to phpmyadmin it shows that :

Error
MySQL said:
#1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

If same thing happens for you find config.inc.php file in wamp  installation folder and edit the following line

$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘password’]      = ‘Your_Password’;

Have a nice day !!
