Fix phpMyAdmin permission issue on VMWare #657

On VMWare, the default shared folder permissions are 777, which makes phpMyAdmin uncooperative, giving the following error message when trying to use it:

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

This patch will disable permission checking in phpMyAdmin to get around this. The permission checking is a mechanism to avoid security issues on shared hosts, but since VVV is presumed to be a development environment this should cause no issues.

This is a little scary, but I think ok overall. I'm going to open another issue to document some of the possible security issues in VVV if configured with a public network.

Thanks @khromov!

I went ahead and reverted this, only because it's still in the develop branch and has not been merged to master. Instead, we now have the ability to use a custom config file for phpMyAdmin via #688 that should be used for this instead. This prevents possible security issues on public networks.

Thanks again for the original ticket. :)
