View Full Version : phpMyAdmin Config File Question?

Jul 29th, 2002, 10:33 PM
my web address is www.domainwebdesigns.com (Dont look its bad)... But i am trying to install phpMyAdmin on my server and i have all the files uploaded and i tryed to edit the Config file like im supposed to...But im not sure if im doing it right...

I get an error saying

Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

I think that ip is mine :confused

All i entered was

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'www.domainwebdesigns.com';

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'domainwe';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '******'; -Cencored for security

Thats all i have added and nothing else has been changed...What am i doing wrong

Yeh, setting it to your domain only works in the rare instance you have remote mysql access (which most hosts don't like to grant due to security concerns).
