Hi @EatingTurquoiseDolphin,

You’ll need to make the config file of phpMyAdmin 755, like so

sudo chmod 755 /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin/

To do that, SSH to your Droplet and execute the above command.

Please note that phpmyadmin might be located in a different folder. What I’ll recommend is to try and find it like so

find / -name 'phpmyadmin'
