~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After several attempts I finally got this far. I get access to my site by logging into it at http://localhost/MSJ2/administrator/index.php but I can not access the phpadmin page from WAMP.
ERROR: 403 You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server.

phpmyadmin is not configured to be accessed over a network, which is why you get 403 error.
Locate the file phpmyadmin.conf in your wamp installation. If you have wampserver version 2 or higher, this file can be found at C:\wamp\alias\phpmyadmin.conf (Of course assuming that you installed wamp in C:\wamp). For earlier wamp versions this file is at C:\wamp\Apache2\conf\alias\phpmyadmin.conf. Once found,open this file. Contents of the file will be like the following: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 Alias /phpmyadmin "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin220.127.116.11/" # to give access to phpmyadmin from outside # replace the lines # # Order Deny,Allow # Deny from all # Allow from 127.0.0.1 # # by # # Order Allow,Deny # Allow from all # Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride all Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.1 As it is clearly written in the file itself, replace the line Deny from all (second line from the bottom )with Allow from all. Save the file, restart apache and you are done. PhpMyadmin can be accessed from outside now.
