I have setup the myphpadmin on my CentOS 6.4 recently. I can access and login to the myphpadmin on my localhost. However, when I type http://[hostipaddr]/phpmyadmin on my other computer in the same LAN with the CentOS, the browser simply cannot access the page. Below are some of the current configuration. Anyone can help please......?

/* Authentication type */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'http';
/* Server parameters */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = 'tcp';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false;
/* Select mysql if your server does not have mysqli */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysql';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;


<Directory /var/www/html/phpmyadmin/>
order allow,deny
allow from all

Furthermore, I can access the webpage that stored in the CentOS from my other computer without problems. After using wireshark and tcpdump, I found that the server (the Cent OS) keep resetting the connection. ( is my other computer, is my CentOS)

23:29:42.281473 IP > Flags [S], seq    2559409090, win 65535, options [mss 1460,nop,wscale 8,nop,nop,sackOK], length 0
23:29:42.281504 IP > Flags [R.], seq 0, ack 2559409091, win 0, length 0

I have disabled the iptables service on the CentOS already.

OP Indicated he resolved this issue by:

It is because I have not configured the httpd.conf to allow the centos listen port 80 and 8080.

Listen 80 
Listen 8080
