How to access phpmyadmin from other machine via web browser

Hi there,

In my organisation, redmine has been hosted on a machine having its ip address as 192.168.1.172
To backup bitnami-redmine db, everytime we need to login in native machine. And then through the address 127.0.0.1:8080/phpmyadmin to download db backup.

Is there any way to access same through other machine in network through web browser ?

Hi,

You can disable it changing the phpMyAdmin Apache configuration file. Check this quick guide and post if you have any questions or suggestions. Check the required changes in the “Virtual Machine” tab.

I am using this putty application for first time and don’t know how it behaves…

As I have already mentioned, I am accessing redmine with url http://192.168.1.172:18080/redmine

and accessing phpmyadmin in native(where redmine is hosted) machine at http://127.0.0.1:18080/phpmyadmin

I followed the steps as mentioned…generated private key

Please help me…

Hi @lajish

There is another way to access to your phpMyAdmin installation in your local network. Go to your Redmine machine and edit installdir/apps/phpmyadmin/conf/httpd-app.conf:

    <IfVersion >= 2.3>
      Require ip 192.168.1.0/24 
    </IfVersion>

After that, please restart the Stack Apache server.

Keep in mind that this configuration will allow any machine in your local network (192.168.1.0-255) to access to phpMyAdmin. If you only want to give access only to a few IPs, then you can configure it like this:

    <IfVersion >= 2.3>
      Require ip 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.3 192.168.1.4
    </IfVersion>

So only the machines with the IPs 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.3 and 192.168.1.4 will be able to access to phpMyAdmin.

I hope it helps.

Best regards
