Introduction
phpMyAdmin is a super fantastic front end php script to the popular
MySQL database server. It makes administrating your databases a whole
lot easier. You can find out more about phpMyAdmin at
http://www.phpmyadmin.net

Requirements
1. phpMyAdmin
2. Abyss Web Server
3. MySQL
4. phpedit
5. WinZIP


Please Note:
1. You do not need phpedit to edit anything... You can use your favorite
editor in replace of... But if all you have is notepad you'll thank me
for it and its free...

2. Make double sure MySQL is already running and has a green light and is
ready to serve and make sure Abyss is running without a hitch...

Installation Step One
Download any of the phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 packages...(php, not php3)
1. Create a new folder called scripts in your Abyss program root
directory...
2. Unpackage phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 and go one level deep...
3. Rename the last phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 folder to phpMyAdmin... Drag that
folder into the scripts folder located in the Abyss program root
directory...
================================

Installation Step Two
1. Right click Abyss in the system tray > Show Console > Server
Configuration > Advanced > Aliases > Add...

2. In Virtual Path enter: "/phpMyAdmin" without the quotes
3. In Real Path enter: "scripts/phpMyAdmin" without the quotes
================================

Note:
Now all that is left is to edit one file before you can access the
page live...

Installation Step Three
Navigate to your scripts/phpMyAdmin directory and open up
config.inc.php (This is the only file you need to edit)

1. line 39: $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] = 'http://localhost/phpMyAdmin';

Save the config.inc.php file but leave it open...

Please Note:
If you never password protected MySQL copy the URL you put into
line 39: and paste that into your browser > click go > Congratulations!

If you did at one point password protect the root user you might have
to edit lines 74 and 75 (user and password), save your file and now
you should be able to access phpMyAdmin...

Here is an example of how lines 74 and 75 might look after changing
the values...

74. $cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root';
75. $cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = 'password';

For new users chances are on your first login you'll see the following
in red...

"Your configuration file contains settings (root with no password)
that correspond to the default MySQL privileged account. Your MySQL
server is running with this default, is open to intrusion, and you
really should fix this security hole."


Don't worry now you have the GUI to easily password protect your
MySQL... Go to Privileges and edit each user on the list and assign each
user a password...

Now if after assigning passwords to each user you happen to get locked
out of accessing phpMyAdmin don't worry... go back into config.inc.php
and edit lines 74 and 75 and enter the correct values...

We'll that's it I hope you got phpMyAdmin working :)

TIP 1: It is a wise idea to use Abyss to password protect the phpMyAdmin
directory...

TIP 2: you can use your global IP address and reach your phpMyAdmin
from any where in the world but if you do remember tip 1.

Great tutorial! :D

I followed your instructions, but I'm getting this error on the main page of "phpMyAdmin" when I go to it:

Code:
MySQL 3.23.55-max-debug running on localhost as root@localhost


I'm sure it shouldn't be in debug mode! How do I fix this?

Make a copy of your config.inc file and remove the username & password to your database. Send me the copy and I'll compare it. Otherwise I wouldn't know since it never happened to me. My Address is webserver2003xp @ vbgunz.com

If you managed to fix the problem by now please share with us the cause and solution, thank you :)

Starting from the 7th paragraph from the bottom should help to answer your question.

Use phpMyAdmin to password protect MySQL
Use Abyss to password protect the phpMyAdmin directory

Good luck :)

Anyone home? Err... I got a different version of phpMyAdmin and it says
Code:
Notice: Undefined index: user in C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\scripts\phpMyAdmin\libraries\common.lib.php on line 834

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\scripts\phpMyAdmin\libraries\common.lib.php:834) in C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\scripts\phpMyAdmin\index.php on line 43

Can you help me?

I'd love to you help you out datwig but I am not sure where the problem exist. You can feel free to send me the config.inc.php file... Just remove only the user and password, but try leaving everything else untouched...

You can reach me at any of my instant messengers and email me your copy of the config at webserver2003xp @ vbgunz.com

Unfortunately I am now wiz at phpMyAdmin and have only originally written it to jump start others into it... Though this guide is for 2.3.3 and 2.4.0 is out not much has changed at all... All the same rules apply. All that might be different which you should consider are the line numbers found within the config.inc.php file... They might be off by two lines...

Be good, send me the file, if you solve it let us know what the problem was. Good luck :)

This new layout is to be applied to the latest version of phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 though nothing changed much in regards to upgrading from version 2.3.3...

I just re-edited the layout of the guide. I hope its easier to understand and easier on the eyes. I do plan on changing the layouts for all my guides soon enough. Thanks for all the positive emails and PMs :)

Hows the layout for the new guide and should new guides follow this layout or does it really matter?

Thanks fellas :)

I am always sort of pressed for time and lately I just got custody of my daughter back and life as a single dad can only leave you with less time.

I'll get to editing the other guides as soon as I have the time and I do have a few other guides I'll hopefully release soon enough...

I've got a question for those of you who play with bbcode a lot. Is there a more visual way to create it? Something like a wysiwyg where you can actually see it as you create it rather than having to preview it first?

Its not much of a problem but I would surely like to be able to run through it. Also an HTML to bbcode converter is cool... I found a script but can't get it to work so I am still looking... Thanks for any input on this and thanks for the cool comments so far :)

VB Gunz,

How come your site keeps going to the PHP.net home page? I wanted to peek at your site. :)

I find BBCode really easy to use, because it's just like HTML (for the most part) only with brackets instead of parentheses.

Plus, if you hover your cursor over the buttons right under the SUBJECT line when you go to post a message, it gives you the BBCode for the tag you want. If you click on one of the buttons, it inserts the BBCode BEGINNING tag right into your message, then you type your text, then you click the button again to make it insert the END tag.

Also, to the right underneath the Emoticons, where it says OPTIONS, then BBCode is ON/OFF - If you click on the BBCode link, a page will popup with directions on how to use BBCode.

I hope this helps you. :)

Thank you DLashley :)

Its not really much of a problem to do the bbcode the way I see it now, its just I am always seeking a speedier way of doing things... Thank you very much though as your answer would pretty much cover everything here :)

Thanks for the input, I am very grateful :D

First you should understand this is an "installation" guide and not a "configuration" guide. This guide is only here to help you install phpMyAdmin... In order to configure it you must dig deeper into the phpMyAdmin manual...

Did you vote on this installation guide "no - I have problems?". Please if you read any of the other guides try to understand thier only purpose is to help you through installation and nothing more. You're best hitting the manuals which accompany the scripts you're working with.

Good luck 8)

I didn't even vote, well thanks for trying to help. And thanks for the installation guide.I just thought that the installation affected something because when I upgraded I began having that problem.

Continue making awsome guides,

Thank you Deledar :) I really do not think an upgrade affected your installation. Best bet and its possible, maybe you've got a corrupt package. Its not uncommon for a package to get corrupted at any phase, download, unzipping and even copying or moving the files... A hard disk which is about to fail can also corrupt data.

Thanks for the comment, I hope you get the problem solved soon enough. Good luck :)

phpMyAdmin can only password protect MySQL and Abyss password protects phpMyAdmin. Open the Abyss console and navigate to > Home > Server Configuration > Advanced... The two options which help you in protecting your directories is Users and Groups and Access Control. Good luck :)

AHHHHHHHHHHH...can someone pleeeeease explain this part???
Quote:

1. Create a new folder called scripts in your Abyss program root
directory...
2. Unpackage phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 and go one level deep...
3. Rename the last phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 folder to phpMyAdmin... Drag that
folder into the scripts folder located in the Abyss program root
directory


when i go to http://localhost/phpMyAdmin i just get the phpMyAdmin index. meaning the files and stuff, not the program?

C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\scripts (inside the Abyss root directory (not htdocs).
Quote:
2. Unpackage phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 and go one level deep...
Usually when you do an unzip most of the time you get the programs folder... then you click in and get another "programs folder" which inside holds all of the content needed...
Quote:
3. Rename the last phpMyAdmin 2.4.0 folder to phpMyAdmin... Drag that folder into the scripts folder located in the Abyss program root directory
Ultimately you're trying to get this:
C:\Program Files\Abyss Web Server\scripts\phpMyAdmin\index.php

1.Though phpMyAdmin is not in your root web folder (htdocs), an alias is created which fills the gap.
2. You need php.net to get the script to work. Good luck :)

everything your clarified is what i already did. BUt yet the index.php page is coming up as either source code, or its showing the entire index of phpMyAdmin. Is there anything else that could cause the index.php to not execute correctly?
And in the last response you said

i didnt see anything like that in the initial instructions....and what is it?

php.net = core php language files at http://www.php.net... You need php in order to run phpMyAdmin... If you're seeing an index trying to access phpMyAdmin a directorie is out of order and if you're seeing source code php is not configured correctly... Trouble shoot your setup and let me know. Good luck :)

Abyss is not bundled with php and Windows does not by default carry a copy of php like Linux does... You have to download the build from http://www.php.net and then install it as according to these instructions: http://www.aprelium.com/abyssws/php.html

Good luck :)

I had no problem installing it but when I go to http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/ I get this:

Code:

Welcome to phpMyAdmin 2.4.0


Error

MySQL said:

Any ideas?

Is that the entire error message? It seems MySQL is off or unreachable...

1. phpMyAdmin cannot run without a running copy of MySQL installed on your machine.
2. Make sure no firewalls actively turn away traffic between two different communicating applications not to mention themselves...
3. Make sure MySQL is running without a hiccup (greenlight on winmysqladmin).
4. Make sure the default MySQL database exist without customizations unless you know what you're doing.

Is Everything ok?

Yes that is the entire message. MySQL is installed (I followed you guide to install it). My router and firewall are proberly configured to allow traffice for phpMyAdmin and MySQL. the green light is onm I also installed myODBC as php<yAdmin said that it was no installed. there does not appeat to be any DB installed at all. Also it appears that winmysqladmin can not make a connection to the server. Does that help you out any more? :)

Do you have any important data in MySQL at the moment? If not, reinstall it to the same location as before without any kind of modification and run the phpMyAdmin script again... I believe your default MySQL database possibly got corrupted or even deleted somehow...

I do not use winmysqladmin and do prefer phpMyAdmin, but if you say it can't communicate, something isn't right... Hopefully a fresh install will help you out... You do not have to uninstall phpMyAdmin, just reinstall MySQL...

I really wish I could help you further but I never got the error myself and so I have no answers in my DB. Good luck and if you manage to get the answer to it, please post it back here for others to read.

Thanks Gatewayy

Good luck :)

PS. Try a search for your errors keywords on Google if worse comes to worse

i never modified anything, i followed your guide step by step fone MySQL and phpMyAdmin. I will try a fresh install I suppose but I have never had problems with either when I used them in the past.
