Install phpmyadmin in CENTOS 7

Install phpmyadmin in CENTOS 7

Step 1: Add the EPEL Repository

phpMyAdmin is part of Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL), which is a community repository of non-standard packages for the RHEL distribution. First, we’ll install the EPEL repository:

rpm -iUvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-5.noarch.rpm

Step 2: Install phpMyAdmin

First, you’ll follow a simple best practice: ensuring the list of available packages is up to date before installing anything new.

yum -y update

Then it’s a matter of just running one command for installation via apt-get:

yum -y install phpmyadmin

Step 3: Find Your IP Address

Step 4: Basic Configuration for phpMyAdmin

To secure phpMyAdmin we should lock down access to a specific IP address. When the phpMyAdmin package is installed, an Apache Virtual Host file is added to configure web access. Let’s edit that file:

vim /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf

By default, the configuration for phpMyAdmin only allows access from the server on which it is installed. Find the following sections and change each IP address to the one you found in Step 3, or another IP address that will be connecting to phpMyAdmin remotely:

Require ip 127.0.0.1

Allow from 127.0.0.1

Require ip 127.0.0.1

Allow from 127.0.0.1

Then exit and save the file with the command :wq .

Restart Apache:

systemctl restart httpd

Verify that phpMyAdmin is working by visiting http://the_IP_of_your_server/phpmyadmin. For example: http://1.2.3.4/phpmyadmin

Also you will have to go remove the password authetification in the phpmyadmin conf file

After those steps simply create a user with the desired password and all privilege granted!

Et voilà!
