Easy access to PhpMyAdmin

Post by PeteA » Mon Jan 16, 2006 4:56 am

Not sure if this has been covered before, but I'd like to give PhpMyAdmin access for an account to a specific person.

Basically (to set the scene), I have setup a development subdomain on one site (ie. dev.domain.net). I have setup an ftp account to 'dev', so that the developers can upload files, however they also need access to PhpMyAdmin.

I can't give them the logon to Control Panel for 'domain.net' as this would give them far too much control etc.

Additionally they are behind a corporate firewall, which blocks all ports other than 80 and 443 - just to confuse issues even more :)

I know that I could create my own PhpMyAdmin for 'domain.net', but this seems senseless as there is already one in existence within Control Panel.

To the best of my knowledge, you're out of luck on this one. CPanels phpmyadmin must be called from with CPanel, and while you can call cpanel using http://www.domain.com/cpanel/ it will use the cpanel redirect.cgi to push you to the appropriate port (hence that will not get you past the corporate firewall).

You'll have to install a separate instance of phpmyadmin. Take a look here:

Thought I'd have to do this to be honest :)

Oh well, not too harsh I guess if I stick on a Apache password in addition to the usual MySQL bits.

A subdomain of mysql.domain.net or phpmyadmin.domain.net seems to be a sensible thing to do.

thanks all
