    Restrict phpmyadmin by IP

    Answer from KH-JamesW from another thread. Posted here as a resource for fellow DA newbies: Navigate to /var/www/html/phpMyAdmin/ and create ".htaccess" - pico, nano, or vim all work here of course. And insert the following: Code: <Limit GET POST PUT> Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from...

    change phpmyadmin url

    Thanks! This was easy to implement and will likely serve my needs just fine! However, would it be safe to use this .htaccess method in combination with changing the phpmyadmin url/alias as you described at the top of the thread?

    change phpmyadmin url

    No. I tried the the "phpmyadmin_public" option before posting here, but I didn't appreciate how the url is still obvious. (Have not updated the url yet) I do receive the message when logged in as user. I get the impression from the DA admin in the following thread that the we need to activate...

    change phpmyadmin url

    I have tried this, but get the following message: "Access to phpMyAdmin is only allowed from control panel." I try to access via the control panel in DirectAdmin and get the same message. I'm not sure what I'm missing here...

    Restrict phpmyadmin by IP

    change phpmyadmin url

    Thanks so much for the detailed, yet easy-to-follow instructions! I wonder though, is there a chance this could "break" months down the line due to an apache or directadmin update? If so, could you post instructions on how to revert this. (just delete the newly created directory?) (I would...

    change phpmyadmin url

    Hello, I've noticed a lot of hits on domain/phpmyadmin and would like to change the directory to something less obvious (like I used to have with cPanel). What is KH's recommended method for changing the URL for phpmyadmin? (All I can find is this thread from 2008...

    DirectAdmin SSL login quirk...

    I don't imagine having more than a half-dozen domains. Sounds like I can probably leave things as-is for now... Thanks for your help, Jonathan!

    DirectAdmin SSL login quirk...

    Great! -Thanks for the detailed info! Other than overcoming the log-in "quirk" I encountered, is there an advantage to using mail sni for a non-reseller VPS like myself?

    DirectAdmin SSL login quirk...

    Hi Jonathan, I just checked the directadmin.conf file and everything you mention above appears to be set (during install by KH tech). "./directadmin set ssl_redirect_host" is set to host.mydomain.com Should this be set to www.mydomain.com? To clarify: Typing http://www.mydomain.com:2222...

    DirectAdmin SSL login quirk...

    Using the built-in Let's Encrypt, my site seems to be all "hooked up" for SSL, but when attempting to log in into DA via https, (https://www.mydomain.com:2222) I get a "This Connection is not private" browser message. HOWEVER... If I try to access via http via (http://www.mydomain.com:222) it...

    Support tickets - "passwordless access"?

    I've noticed that when entering a support ticket, there's a message on the form that says we no longer need to enter an IP for root unless if we've "opted out of passwordless access." Shouldn't this sort of thing be an "opt-in" choice? Furthermore, I don't see anywhere where we can opt out of...
