How to Install and Configure phpMyAdmin on Fedora 20

Step 1: 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 2: Find Your IP Address


Find your IP address with any of the following sites:


Step 3: 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
