PHPMyAdmin is a popular open-source administration panel for MySQL servers. It can be run on a local machine, or on a remote server using a Linode server.
Accessing phpMyAdmin from a Linode is simple. You can follow these steps:
1. First, sign in to your Linode account.
2. Then, open a web browser and enter the Linode’s IP address or hostname in the address bar. For example, if your Linode is located at IP address 192.168.1.100, you would enter http://192.100 in your browser.
3. If you are using a Linode as a web server, you can access phpMyAdmin by navigating to the following directory:
4. If you are using a Linode as a virtual server, you can access phpMyAdmin by navigating to the following directory:
5. Once you are in phpMyAdmin, you can login using the username and password you set up when you installed phpMyAdmin. You can also create a new account if you do not have one.
6. To finish setting up phpMyAdmin on your Linode, you need to add the Linode user to the phpMyAdmin group. To do this, open the file /etc/phpmyadmin/config.php and locate the line that reads:
- ‘group_name’ => ‘phpmyadmin’,
and add the Linode user to the group. For example, if your username is joe and your Linode’s IP address is 192.168.100, you would add the following line to the file:.
- ‘joe’ => array( ‘group_name’ => ‘phpmyadmin’, ),
7. After you make these changes, restart the phpMyAdmin server by entering the following command:
- phpmyadmin restart.
