Setup phpMyAdmin on CentOS 5.x

Linux Box Solutions Blog - Linux Articles


phpMyAdmin is a web based front-end GUI programmed in PHP that allows you to control and manage your MySQL Servers. It can be difficult to find a working tutorial so here we actually go over step by step installation of phpMyAdmin on a CentOS 5.x system. This setup should work for any rhel based system.


PHP 5.2 - Setup PHP 5.2 in less than 2 Minutes Click Here
PHP MutliByte String Functions
MySQL 5.0


If you used the link above to install php5.2 than your fine using the next two commands with no worries of having to find another tutorial to install php-mbstring and to ensure you have mysql-server 5.0

yum install php-mbstring mysql-server httpd

Here you are going to make sure the system is fully up to date.

yum update

We are going to set this up in the default Apache directory for ease of this tutorial

cd /var/www/html/

Now we are going to download PHP 5.2 from sourceforge.net

wget -c http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmyadmin/files/phpMyAdmin/

Untaring the phpMyAdmin compressed file we just downloaded from Sourceforge.net

tar xvfz phpMyAdmin-

This command is only to change the name of the folder that untaring the file from sourceforge.net produced. Which also once again helps for ease of use for the administrator setting up the system.

mv phpMyAdmin- phpMyAdmin

Now we are navigating into the phpMyAdmin directory.

cd phpMyAdmin

We are going to copy over the configuration file from the sample provided by the great folks of phpMyAdmin and just in case you happen to mess up the configuration file you will have the sample to start from again.

cp config.sample.inc.php config.inc.php

Now we are going to edit the configuration of phpMyAdmin.

vi config.inc.php

Under Servers Configuration ---> First Server ---> Authentication Type

There is a line that reads: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';

Change this line to read: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'http';

Setting up phpMyAdmins MySQL Database and tables needed to correctly run phpMyAdmin.

mysql -uroot -p < scripts/create_tables.sql

Restarting Apache

service httpd restart

Now Visit http://ip-address/phpMyAdmin from another pc on the Network and use the root user name and password to login to the phpMyAdmin.

Android Illuminate


Ok everyone, we know you have been waiting for the next release of Android Illuminate. Please check back here at the site either Tonight or Tomorrow for the update. Sorry but didn't want to just throw out an update for nothing, we rather provide quality updates to the Android Illuminate ROM.

In version Android Illuminate 2.5 not much has changed you may notice some graphical changes through out the interface. We are working on a full overhaul and if anyone has any suggestions for the interface of Android Illuminate you are more than welcome to send us your suggestions through the contact form on our Contact Us page.


Android Illuminate and it's stability and performance are still Rivaled in the Honeycomb ROMs for the Viewsonic Gtablet and I have to say thank you to the community of www.LinuxBoxSolutions.com for the support they have show and the great feed back they give. I appreciate everyone's support. This release of Android Illuminate still does not have working Flash, no Full 1080p HD & yes 720p HD works, No Camera as of yet (which we are working on), but stability has improved somewhat with switching some libraries and binaries out for ones from the Acer Iconia and Asus Transformer.

So thank you everyone for your patients and support.
