    Im a little new at this so please bear with me.
    Im using a client account and trying to access phpmyadmin , after clicking it, you get a message that "Existing configuration file (./config.inc.php) is not readable."
    Can anyone advise ?

    By the way, I can access phpmyadmin using root account. Just unable to access it using any client account.

    When I try to change the permissions to make it readable it says:

    usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php
    Permission denied.
    Error code: 3
    Error message from server: Permission denied
    Request code: 3

    Sidenote...none of the users/including root can access PHPMyAdmin due to this error now.

    I'm not able to change permissions because 'cpanel' is the owner??

    Hello,

    For this you have to login to server as root and correct the permission:

    config.inc.php

    is a common file name and can be found under many php applications so I cant tell you what can be the ownership and permission on file.But if you have installed it under any user account then all the files and directories will have the owner and group as the cpanel username of that account and also try permission for the file:

    config.inc.php

    as 750 and 755. It may solve the issue.
    Please let me know if you have any problem or you get this fixed.Will be happy to help you in resolving the issue.

    Regards.

    Hi!

    Yes, I tried those too...but for some reason any type of changing of the file wasnt permitted being that root wasnt the owner...cpanel was...
