phpMyAdmin 2.x configuration
PHP 5.2+ is required for phpmyadmin 3.x, son on RHEL5 we keep using v2.x.
Fetch the latest 2.x stable release ( and untar it to somedir/ e.g.,
cd ~/
wget ""
tar xzf phpMyAdmin-
mv phpMyAdmin- /var/www/vhosts/local.example.apache/myadmin/
Cookie auth is just fine,
cd /var/www/vhosts/local.example.apache/myadmin/
sed '/^\//d; /^ \*/d; /^$/d' >
then change,
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = 'ANYTHING HERE';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
Note. otherwise you can always use apache authentication methods, see
Ready to go
Verify your access as mysql root,
mysql -uroot -p
Point your browser to phpmyadmin,
Note. you might experience some cache troubles. If so, flush you browser's cache.
Fix users & privileges
See the "Databases" and "Privileges" tabs. Make sure each user has only grant access to its own database. Also eventually remove the second root user, the local one is enought.
