Well, tells you how to get round it, but I don't understand what this new "feature" does - so I would be hesitant to just work round it. However, if you just want it to work and security's not a priority, then it's probably okay. Otherwise, you'll need to find out what it's meant to do (and how it's meant to be configured for it to work).

Hope this helps,

rasel@rasel-Dell:~$ type your password
root@rasel-Dell:/# cd /opt/lampp/phpmyadmin
root@rasel-Dell:/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin# chmod 644
root@rasel-Dell:/opt/lampp/phpmyadmin# cd /
root@rasel-Dell: /opt/lampp/lampp restart

Thats all its works for me
