After installing Acquia Dev Desktop, lynda.com student Kelly Thebo click its "Manage my database" button and got the following error:
You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin on this server.
She adapted a solution on Corpocrat.com:
- In Acquia Dev Desktop, click Settings > Config > edit(next to Apache [httpd.conf file])
- Go to the bottom of the file and find:
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
Allow from localhost 127.0.0.1
- Comment out the "Order allow,deny" line.
