I’m a complete noob but I can follow instructions quite well… :) I was following the article on how the install and secure the phpmyadmin installation on Ubuntu until I hit an error: When I run the command sudo htpasswd -c /home/myusername/passwd/.htpasswd username I get error “cannot create file /home/myusername/passwd/.htpasswd” I double checked the .htaccess file and the AuthUserFile matches the path above. In the .htaccess file what I have is: AuthUserFile /home/myusername/passwd/.htpasswd As far as I can see the paths are identical. I’d appreciate your help on this as I cannot figure this out.
Thank you in advance, Goran
