Correcting error: “You don’t have permission to access /phpmyadmin on this server.”

After installing Acquia Dev Desktop, 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

  1. In Acquia Dev Desktop, click Settings > Config > edit(next to Apache [httpd.conf file])
  2. Go to the bottom of the file and find:<directory "="" applications="" acquia-drupal="" phpmyadmin"="">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI
    AllowOverride All
    #Order allow,deny
    Allow from localhost
  3. Comment out the “Order allow,deny” line.

Thanks, Kelly!
