PhpMyAdmin unauthorized after iRedMail installation

Posted November 1, 2014 3.5k views

Hello, developers of Digital Ocean.

Recently, i started using digital ocean as my web server. I installed a LAMP stack in Ubuntu 14, then i want to setup a webmail using iRedMail, that is when i accidentally didn’t omit the PhpMyAdmin selection in the iRedMail installation. That caused my PhpMyAdmin become inaccessible (showing 401 Unauthorized message). How do i fix this? Is it possible that the iRedMail phpmyadmin reinstallation change my previous phpmyadmin folder security settings?

I’m a newbie in VPS and Linux, any help would be greatly appreciated.

It’s likely this installation changed your PHPMyAdmin settings. You likely need to reinstall, or restore the settings from a backup, and potentially uninstall and reinstall iRedMail.
