  1. I follow these steps and my webpage says access forbidden 403.
    My normal site works fine but I can’t access phpmyadmin.

    1. A 403 status code indicates that the client cannot access the requested resource. It means the wrong username and password were sent in the request, or that the permissions on the server do not allow what was being asked.
