phpmyadmin problems


Hi
i have installed phpmyadmin on my server but when i try to login with this path http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/index.php
it gives me a blank page using the web browser but when i try it from the command line i get http 500 error
but when i try to login using http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/ i get a
Forbidden error on both the commend line and browser
Note i installed the same one on my own system and it works fine with the same config but the major differents is that my system is
Fedora 9 32bit and the server is Fedora 9 64bit
Can anyone help with this problem

Try this hint to see if that's the case of your problem. Also the "Forbidden" error means that you didn't add index.php in your DirectoryIndex directive.

Did you saw the page allowing you to change the theme?
What version of phpmyadmin are you using and how did you configured it?
Try the setup script to see if it works (make a backup of config.inc.php before starting).

Regards

The URL for chaning the theme is: http://yourserver.com/phpMyAdmin/mai...utf-8&server=1
I think it's worth a try since nothing else works.
Or as a last resort, you can uninstall it using yum and install it from phpmyadmin site.
