Hi
I have a simple question about phpmyadmin
I can use it on lan but not on wan

I have changed the settings to :
----------------------------------
 Order Allow,Deny
 Allow from all
---------------------------------

But i am not sure to how to access it
I am using WAMP Server so phpmyadmin is in C:\wamp\bin folder

We have about 20 virtual hosts on our server

How to I setup phpmyadmin so I can type a path in the browser and get access to it from WAN:

Regards
Morten

Did you modify your .htaccess file? or the main apache config file you might find that the apache has limited the IP's to local IP's for that directory. for security reasons.

On ours we deny all IPs except an approved list of IPs

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 111.222.333.444
Allow from 11.22.33.44
...etc

It means that you have to use static IP addresses but it keeps the hackers out of phpMyAdmin. Also consider changing the name of the folder (and DON'T use "pma" it is the next guess hackers try after "phpmyadmin").

If you cannot use static IPs then consider implementing an .htpasswd file with a different password from phpmyadmin.

Hi
Thanks for your replies
My problem is what do I write in the URL line to access?

I have a domain like www.eadvice.dk

Do I just move the phpmyadmin folder from C:\wamp\bin  to C:\wamp\www\domainfolder\  ?
Do i write something into the "virtual host" file?

I have tried that but does not work.
I think i have got the permission correct. problem is I dont know how to access it via an URL

Found out my self
Inside the www\alias there is a phpmyadmin.conf file
I can change alias here to xxxx
then i can access phpmyadmin from www.domain.com\xxxx

MOds:  I would recommend PAQ and refund.  This is a good solution, and I hate to let it erased.  Cheers.
