Fix: Wrong permissions on configuration file, should not be world writable!

Problem: When attempting to access PHP MyAdmin on my Synology DiskStation i get the following error:

Wrong permissions on configuration file, should not be world writable!

Solution: Enable FTP access from the management UI and then open/install FileZilla. Connect to the DiskStation using admin credentials and navigate to the //diskstation/web/phpmyadmin folder/.

Locate the ‘config.inc.php’ file right click and select ‘file attributes’. Change the numeric value to 705.

You should then be able to access the PHP MyAdmin page and login with username ‘root’, leave the password field blank. Once you have logged in the very first thing you should do is create a secure password for the root account.
