Question

Using fedora, but I cannot get passed the permission to access phpmyadmin

I get forbidden, and it says I do not have permission… I have changed my config file so many times just to see if I could get permission… currently I just have one require and allow per each section of the file rather than two like you usually start out with, for a total of 2 of each. one within the setup part, and another within the main part. All of the requires/allows have my ip… Which seemed to not make a difference at all…

Hey there,

Have you configured SELinux? You can check the status of SELinux with this:

  1. getenforce

You can try this to temporarily disable SELinux:

  1. setenforce 0

To persistently disable or enable SELinux, you would edit the /etc/selinux/config file. You can also view the /var/log/audit/audit.log file to see the error and context that is causing phpmyadmin to not work, which would make it easier to apply a context to the phpmyadmin folder so you can keep SELinux enabled.

Happy coding,
