This happened to me today. It looks like the license of my cPanel has run out and I need to access the database in urgent. Luckily the FTP access still working so I can install phpMyAdmin manually that way. However, being a lazy person, I found a quicker and less labour intensive. To open phpMyAdmin without cPanel, you will just need to open this link: http://www.yourdomain.com:2083/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/index.php Obviously, you need to change yourdomain.com to your correct domain and if your cPanel is on a different port, you need to change the port number as well, but other than that, the link should work.
