Question

I try to restart httpd.service and got an error code AH00526: Syntax error on line 1 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmind.conf: please help

code:

phpMyAdmin - Web based MySQL browser written in php

Allows only localhost by default

But allowing phpMyAdmin to anyone other than localhost should be considered

dangerous unless properly secured by SSL

Alias /phpMyAdmin /usr/share/phpMyAdmin Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpMyAdmin

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/> AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

<IfModule mod_authz_core.c> # Apache 2.4 <RequireAny> Require ip 127.0.0.1 Require ip ::1 </RequireAny> </IfModule> <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c> # Apache 2.2 Order Deny,Allow Deny from All Allow from 127.0.0.1 Allow from ::1 </IfModule> </Directory>

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/setup/> <IfModule mod_authz_core.c> # Apache 2.4 <RequireAny> Require ip 127.0.0.1 Require ip ::1 </RequireAny> </IfModule> <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c> # Apache 2.2 Order Deny,Allow Deny from All Allow from 127.0.0.1 Allow from ::1 </IfModule> </Directory>

These directories do not require access over HTTP - taken from the original

phpMyAdmin upstream tarball

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/libraries/> Order Deny,Allow Deny from All Allow from None </Directory>

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/setup/lib/> Order Deny,Allow Deny from All Allow from None </Directory>

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/setup/frames/> Order Deny,Allow Deny from All Allow from None </Directory>

This configuration prevents mod_security at phpMyAdmin directories from

filtering SQL etc. This may break your mod_security implementation.

#<IfModule mod_security.c>

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/>

In my phpMyAdmin.conf file I replaced 127.0.0.1 (aka local host) to my current IP address. I use IP Location to find my IP address.

It is possible to use 127.0.0.1 while using a secure SSH tunnel using the Windows PuTTY application. I found this article that explains how to more securely access your phpMyAdmin installation then just hard coding an IP address in the phpMyAdmin.conf file. I would think this method would actually be preferred as everything isn’t sent as plain text.
