With the new release of our MySQL Database, I'm sure a lot of people would like to use phpMyAdmin, which is a common tool used for managing your database through the browser. While we can't provide this tool ourselves, you're able to actually install this into your own hosting account using these steps. 1. Create a MySQL Database First and foremost, you need a MySQL database so you can connect to it. If you haven't already created it through the CP, check out the KB article we have on how to create it, here: http://support.Winhost.com/KB/a830/how-to-create-a-new-mysql-database.aspx 2. Uploading phpMyAdmin First we'll have to download phpMyAdmin. I usually just get the ZIP file, since it's probably the most compatible version across all systems. After you download it, you will unzip it so it's ready to be uploaded. When connected through FTP, create a folder called "phpMyAdmin" (you can actually name it whatever you want), and upload all the contents from the unzipped phpMyAdmin to this folder you just created in your web space. 3. Changing Configuration After it's been uploaded, we'll have to change a configuration file. Locally, open the file "config.sample.inc.php" where you'll change the following line: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost'; to $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'MYSQLHOST'; Obviously, you'll have to change 'MYSQLHOST' to be whatever your MySQL Server address. You can find your server address is by going in the CP to the Sites tab > (manage your domain) > MySQL button. If you select Manage next to your database, you'll see the Database Server, which is your server address. For example, if your database server is 'my01.Winhost.com', your configuration change will look like: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'my01.Winhost.com'; Make this change on the local file, and save it as "config.inc.php" (previously "config.sample.inc.php"). Once saved, upload it to the phpMyAdmin root folder where the rest of the files are. 4. Connecting Since now phpMyAdmin will be upload and pointed to your MySQL Server, all you have to do is browse the URL (eg. http://domain.com/phpMyAdmin/ ) and you'll be asked for the username and password. Put in the database username and password, and this will allow you to view your database. 5. Security We strongly encourage our customers to password protect their phpMyAdmin directory, to make sure they're the only ones able to connect through it. This can be achieved by following the steps provided in this KB article: http://support.Winhost.com/KB/a671/password-protecting-directories-in-iis-7.aspx Try it out, and if you have any questions or problems, be sure to post them.
