I fail to understand why PHPmyadmin is forbidden in Nginx
I fail to understand why entrance to PHPmyadmin is forbidden (
http://my_ip/phpmyadmin). Here’s what I did to install it:
On a pure Ubuntu 16.04 machine (server, xenial) I’ve installed LEMP this way (MySQL root password setted on install):
apt-get update -y apt-get upgrade nginx mysql-server php-fpm php-mysql -y
I then installed PMA:
DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get upgrade phpmyadmin php-mbstring php-mcrypt php-gettext -y ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ /var/www/html/ chown -R www-data:www-data /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ /var/www/html chmod -R a-x,a=rX,u+w /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ /var/www/html
As said, when navigating to (
http://my_ip/phpmyadmin) I get “Forbidden (403)” HTTP status code.
I really fail to understand what’s wrong from the error log:
directory index of “/var/www/html/phpmyadmin/” is forbidden
Hence I ask what might be the problem?
