Subject [users@httpd] securing phpmyadmin access with SSL encryption
Date Sat, 08 Aug 2009 07:25:59 GMT
hello everybody,

this is my first post here :-)       I am running an ubuntu server with 8.04
release
.
I am using phpmyadmin to manage my databases - it is more confortable than
the console.
I am not at ease however sending my mysql root password over the internet
and I would like to secure access to phpmyadmin with SSL encryption.

I am using virtualhosts but phpmyadmin is not a virtual host. It can be
reached at http://IP_server_adress/phpmyadmin

I have generated my own SSL certificate with
sudo make-ssl-cert /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf
/etc/ssl/private/localhost.pem


I guess I should add the following directives somewhere
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/private/localhost.pem


But I wonder where I should add these instructions ? in
/etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf ? in a tailored made virtualhost ?




here is /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

$ more /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf
# phpMyAdmin default Apache configuration

Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin>
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        DirectoryIndex index.php

        # Authorize for setup
        <Files setup.php>
            # For Apache 1.3 and 2.0
            <IfModule mod_auth.c>
                AuthType Basic
                AuthName "phpMyAdmin Setup"
                AuthUserFile /etc/phpmyadmin/htpasswd.setup
            </IfModule>
            # For Apache 2.2
            <IfModule mod_authn_file.c>
                AuthType Basic
                AuthName "phpMyAdmin Setup"
                AuthUserFile /etc/phpmyadmin/htpasswd.setup
            </IfModule>
            Require valid-user
        </Files>
        <IfModule mod_php4.c>
                AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

                php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
                php_flag track_vars On
                php_flag register_globals Off
                php_value include_path .
        </IfModule>
        <IfModule mod_php5.c>
                AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

                php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
                php_flag track_vars On
                php_flag register_globals Off
                php_value include_path .
        </IfModule>
</Directory>
