wrong permission on configuration file in phpMyAdmin


Can anyone give me some clues?

When I'm trying to open phpMyAdmin with firefox web browser, it shows error "Wrong permissions on configuration file, should not be world writable!". I have typed the "chmod o+w config/" and "chmod o+rw config/config.inc.php" in terminal but it still shows the above error.

How am I supposed to solve this problem? I have searched it with search engines but the search results seem not suit to my problem.

You should run:
Code:
chmod a-w config.inc.php
snce the file must not be world writable
