I have installed phpmyadmin for my desktop. I did some configaration for create a vhost in my home directory. After that phpmyadmin is not working. So i check /var/log/httpd/error_log. It is giving following error message.

[Fri Mar 14 20:16:23.563172 2014] [autoindex:error] [pid 4545] [client] AH01276: Cannot serve directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/: No matching DirectoryIndex (index.html) found, and server-generated directory index forbidden by Options directive

I dont know how to fixed that. I checked /usr/share/phpMyAdmin directory. index.html is not there. But index.php is there. What should i do? Please help me.

did you install it manually or from the repository ?

(try changing the DirectoryIndex to index.php)

Just an advice - don't use phpmyadmin ( ). Have you tried to google the error?

I had this problem because I had not installed php yet. I had already installed phpMyAdmin and in previous versions of the Fedora, this installed php too. I did a

yum install php

And everything started working.

Fixing the DirectoryIndex to include index.php helped, but didn't actually run the php script. Installing php fixed that.
