Enabling phpMyAdmin for MySQL Administration
phpMyAdmin popular tool written in PHP to handle MySQL administation over the web is bundled within this AMI. However, for security purposes, 'phpMyAdmin' application is 'disabled' by default within this AMI. Users are strongly urged to protect their MySQL 'root' user with a proper password before enabling this application.
Secure your MySQL database by doing some thing like
/usr/mysql/5.0/bin/mysql -u root -p password
- Un-comment the following line in /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/phpmyadmin
Restart Apache Service by doing some thing like
svcadm restart http:apache22
Now, access phpMyAdmin application over the web by visiting
/phpmyadmin . Will need to login with a valid MySQL database's user name and password.
- Drupal (bundled within this AMI in pre-configured state) is available under location /var/drupal.
- Drupal recommends having a database protected with a valid user name and password to be created on the system before configuring Drupal. Hence, users are advised to either use 'ssh' to login to your AMI or phpMyAdmin to create such database before proceeding to configuring Drupal. For more information, refer to MySQL documentation by visiting here
- Drupal specific configuration for Apache Web Server is available within /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/drupal.conf.
