setting up ssh tunnel to phpmyadmin
I followed the instructions on installing and securing phpmyadmin. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-with-nginx-on-an-ubuntu-18-04-server
Everything worked, except when I got to the last section on ssh tunneling, I ran into issues. I’m not sure what’s causing it, but I’m getting: localhost refused to connect. I am only using secure access, so my script is this:
ssh userid@domain -L 8443:localhost:443 -N
It freezes like it is supposed to, but when I try to access, my server refuses to connect. I turned off the firewall and it is still an issue.
