I have just changed my www folders permission to 777 using this command

sudo chmod -R 777 www

And now when I try to open phpMyAdmin in browser and it is not opening and showing 403 Forbidden Error You don't have permission to access /phpMyAdmin/index.php on this server.

I try to change its permission to 744 but it still displays this error. I tried also to restart the apache after doing this changes but no luck.

How can I open phpMyadmin by changing its permission??

Knowing the apache configuration for phpnyadmin would probably help! – slhck Oct 20 '12 at 7:28

I changed the permission to 755 and now it is working properly.

sudo chmod -R 755 phpMyAdmin
