PhpMyAdmin is a free and open-source web-based database management tool, written in PHP. It provides an easy-to-use interface for managing MySQL and MariaDB databases. PhpMyAdmin allows you to perform various database operations, such as creating, modifying, deleting, and exporting databases, tables, and records.
Step 1: Install LAMP Stack
Before installing phpMyAdmin, you need to have a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack installed on your CentOS 7 server. If you haven't already installed it, you can follow our guide on how to install LAMP stack on CentOS 7.
Step 2: Install phpMyAdmin
1. Start by enabling the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository:
sudo yum install epel-release
2. Once the EPEL repository is enabled, you can install phpMyAdmin using the following command:
sudo yum install phpmyadmin
3. During the installation, you'll be prompted to confirm the installation of the packages. Press 'y' and hit Enter to continue.
Step 3: Configure phpMyAdmin
1. Open the phpMyAdmin configuration file using the text editor of your choice:
sudo vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf
2. Inside the file, find the line that contains 'Require ip 127.0.0.1' and replace it with 'Require all granted'. This will allow access to phpMyAdmin from any IP address:
Require all granted
3. Save and close the file.
Step 4: Restart Apache
After making changes to the phpMyAdmin configuration file, you need to restart the Apache web server to apply the changes:
sudo systemctl restart httpd
Step 5: Accessing phpMyAdmin
Once you have completed the above steps, you can access phpMyAdmin by visiting 'http://your_server_ip/phpmyadmin' in your web browser. Replace 'your_server_ip' with the IP address of your CentOS 7 server.
You will be presented with the phpMyAdmin login page. Enter the MySQL username and password to log in and start managing your databases.
That's it! You have successfully installed and configured phpMyAdmin on CentOS 7. You can now easily manage your MySQL and MariaDB databases through the web interface.
