phpMyAdmin installation on CentOS 6.5 allows log in, but returns a blank page.
I’ve managed to install phpMyAdmin after massive effort, and I can get a log in prompt when I access <ipaddress>/phpmyadmin/
I followed this tutorial on how to install phpmyadmin on CentOS 6.4 (I’m using 6.5).
After I log in, however, it gave me first a 2 panel page with a
Forbidden. You do not have access to phpmyadmin/navigation.php and
Forbidden. You do not have access to phpmyadmin/main.php Now it’s just showing a blank page - but the favicon shows at the top.
I’m using Chrome browser to access in case that’s relevant. I have restarted httpd each time.
I can access phpmyadmin/Documentation.html OK but no PHP files it seems. I’ve tried changing permissions on the /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/ and its content, but that does nothing (they’re now back at 644 and all owned by root).
BTW friends, double- & triple- check your IP address if you’re changing the config file to limit access. The 3 IP address checkers each gave me a *different** one - the last one finally worked.
This seems much more painful that it should be! What am I missing? (I promise to let you know what works as well - drives me nuts to see posts saying ‘it’s fixed now’ without saying how!!)
Thanks in advance.
