I don't see how it could be config related.

Like I said, I originally had a directory called phpMyAdmin, which
didn't work.  I renamed it to pma (to make sure the uppercase
characters weren't causing problems).  It still didn't work.

I then copied it to a new directory named phpMyAdmin, just like the
original directory (cp -pr pma phpMyAdmin).  The new phpMyAdmin
directory works fine.  No config changes in between.

For good measure, I copied it again to yet another directory (cp -pr
pma tst).  That other directory works just fine as well.  Again
without changing anything in the configs.

Kind regards,
