Root phpMyAdmin Access

UniController: Server Configuration > General > Root phpMyAdmin - Change Access

  • A) Local access is the default and prevents both Intranet and Internet users access to phpMyAdmin. Only localhost may connect. It allows the root MySQL administrator direct access without the need to enter a name or password. For security reasons you must change the default MySQL password this prevents accidental cross-site scripting.
  • B) Intranet + passwords. Anyone on your Intranet is allowed access to phpMyAdmin, however to gain access to the MySQL server requires a name and password. A user name and password are stored on the MySQL server for each restricted user created. A restricted user is one that is assigned access only to specific databases, and also has limited privileges for them.
  • C) Internet + passwords +ssl This is similar to Intranet, except that all transactions are performed over a secure encrypted connection using ssl. If you have not installed or created a server certificate, clicking this radio button will produce a warning and the access selection will not change. This security feature forces you to use ssl and prevents sending names and passwords over the Internet in plain text.
  • D) phpMyAdmin root folder is protected by an .htaccess file. This menu button opens this file in the default text editor allowing you to view or edit the file.
  • E) phpMyAdmin is configured using the user configuration file config.inc.php. This menu button opens this file in the default text editor allowing you to view or edit the file.
  • F) This menu button opens phpMyAdmin in the default browser. A greyed out button indicates that Apache is not running and its function are unavailable.
