cPanel phpMyAdmin Fatal PMA_Message not found line 233 cpanel.auth.lib.php

FatalĀ Error when trying to access MySQL via logging into phpMyAdmin as a cPanel user spits out an error like this:

Fatal error: Class 'PMA_Message' not found in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/libraries/auth/cpanel.auth.lib.php on line 233


phpMyAdmin Fatal: PMA_Message::rawError line 233 cpanel.auth.lib.php

You may also get asked for a username/password and when you put in the cPanel account information you get the Fatal error.

From the looks of it the cPanel accounts user has lost connection to the MySQL or be it that it does not know what the username/password is for the account to access MySQL. There is a simple fix.

  1. Log into WHM
  2. SQL Services
  3. Change MySQL DB Owner Password
  4. Select the User from the drop down list
  5. Either put in the cPanel User’s password or Generate a new one
  6. Change Password.


Log back in as the cPanel User and you should have access via phpMyAdmin again.
