I changed my email address attached to my edx account, and after that my grades dissipated. Rob fixed this for me, but now I have the problem listed in this thread (error message " Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed.)" in phpmyadmin. I am also getting an error message in IDE, "[Tue Oct 04 18:04:31.825340 2016] [alias:warn] [pid 8374] AH00671: The Alias directive in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/phpmyadmin.conf at line 3 will probably never match because it overlaps an earlier Alias."

I have tried the steps for sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin several times, logging in and out of ide and phpmyadmin, starting and stopping Web Server just in case it would need to be restarted to take effect, but nothing is fixing my problem. I also get a Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. message when I try to open https://ide50-username.cs50.io/ (with my username, of course). I have double checked all of my file permissions. I looked at my .gitconfig and .hgrc files, and they still have my old email address, but changing them does not fix the problem, so I changed them back.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    FYI the file permissions required for pset7 (and pset8) have changed since the spec was written. Have you verified permissions according to this or this? Are you on the most recent version of the IDE (81 as of today)? phpmyadmin access changed a lot somewhere between version 56 and now. – DinoCoderSaurus Oct 9 '16 at 22:05
  • Thanks so much DinoCoderSaurus. The first one worked a charm. I should have checked on the reddit one too before posting. I only searched this forum. I wonder why it wasn't changed in the problem set specs? Anyway it works now. I still get the message, "AH00671: The Alias directive in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/phpmyadmin.conf at line 3 will probably never match because it overlaps an earlier Alias." but I am able to access the web server. Thank you. – Kera Katera Oct 10 '16 at 17:38
