  • How to secure sql and phpmyadmin?

    PHP is the most and widely used tool that adds value to your website and phpmyadmin is an equivalent asset, for the people that does not like to use command line administration. As it is known as a valuable asset it is simply a security exposure. Most of the issues occurs due to not following standard security guidelines. Usually, people ignore such rules, which results in getting their websites hacked or affected by malicious scripts..

    You can look for an Alias directive on the server, such as :

    Code:
    Alias /phpmyadmin "c:/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin3.1.3.1/"
    Ideally it is located at : c:/wamp/alias/phpmyadmin.conf.

    Changing the alias directive can be a good option to consider.

      The best way to secure PHPMyAdmin is to protect the directory it with a password using a .htaccess. Another way/option is to have it installed in directory with a different name, eg. mydbadm, dbadministration, etc.
