There is no entry in the error log (only for missing favicon).
Just a 403 error in the browser.
You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/index.php on this server.
Access log is not enabled, i enabled it for testing in the app vhost but shows only 403 - no more info.
edit: access log entry:
xx.xx.xx.xx - - [22/Jun/2010:19:25:05 +0200] "GET /phpmyadmin/ HTTP/1.1" 403 193 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20100501 Iceweasel/3.5.9 (like Firefox/3.5.9)"
edit 2: if i do a "a2dismod fcgid" and restart apache it works again, as soon as i a2enmod fcgid -> same as before: 403 - so if one is disabled either in vhost or in apache modules it works - as soon both are enabled in modules and in vhost - error 403
