The www/phpmyadmin port

phpMyAdmin-4.9.5 – tool to handle the administration of MySQL over the web (source)


phpMyAdmin can manage a whole MySQL server (needs a super-user) as
well as a single database. To accomplish the latter you'll need a
properly set up MySQL user who can read/write only the desired database.
It's up to you to look up the appropriate part in the MySQL manual.

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

phpMyAdmin has been installed into ${INSTDIR}.

If using Apache, you can make this accessible to clients by enabling
mod_rewrite in ${SYSCONFDIR}/apache2/httpd2.conf, the mysql php module,
and the configuration file:

    # ln -s ../modules.sample/phpmyadmin.conf /var/www/conf/modules/
    # ln -s ${SYSCONFDIR}/php-${MODPHP_VERSION}.sample/mysqli.ini \
    # rcctl restart apache2

By default, this sets an alias for /phpMyAdmin and restricts access
to connections coming from localhost.
It also restricts access from search engine bots.

If you need to allow wider access, after considering security
implications, edit ${VARBASE}/www/conf/modules.sample/phpmyadmin.conf
and restart Apache.

You can check that you have a working installation by accessing:

Be aware that phpMyAdmin is a frequently attacked target due to a
history of security problems.  You are advised to restrict access to
trusted workstations or access it on localhost via an SSH tunnel.
