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