Whats the problem:

When I goto //localhost/phpmyadmin I get what I would get if I did //localhost/, I'm using both http: and https:.

What did I do, that changed it:

I simply reinstalled lighttpd.

What I have tried:

  • Disabling and re-enabling 50-phpmyadmin.conf, Now I get a "403 - Forbidden" instead.
  • When I goto /phpmyadmin/setup it asks me for a login, Not a clue what it is.
  • Now I'm waiting for someone to help. :) Thanks to anyone with any answers.

Latest Status:

Not working, giving me a "403 - Forbidden".

Add to question 50-phpmyadmin.conf file. – alvosu Feb 1 '11 at 8:30

Make sure that fastcgi and fastcgi-php modules are enabled in lighttpd:

lighty-enable-mod fastcgi
lighty-enable-mod fastcgi-php
