You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

but i have root accsess to the server i am the owner of the box can i do somthing within putty ?

any help would be appreciated.
try this;

/etc/init.d/mysql stop
mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
mysql -u root
you should now see
use mysql;
update user set password=PASSWORD(”Yourpasswordherethatyouwant”) where user=’root’;
flush privileges;
/etc/init.d/mysql stop
/etc/init.d/mysql start
mysql -u root -p
enter the pass you just made .. let me know if it worked, got it from google
