I know that there are scads of articles on the web regarding remotely accessing phpMyAdmin, but none of the articles I see have worked (not even this).
I would like to configure Apache to allow access to phpMyAdmin when it comes from certain IP addresses. I know that I can set it up to allow worldwide access, but that is just asking for problems.
Here is my
phpmyadmin.conf file located in /alias/:
Alias /phpmyadmin "<wamp_installation_root>/apps/phpmyadmin3.3.9/" # to give access to phpmyadmin from outside # replace the lines # # Order Deny,Allow # Deny from all # Allow from 127.0.0.1 <-- Good idea # # by # # Order Allow,Deny # Allow from all <-- IMO, really bad idea # <Directory "C:/Web Development/wamp/apps/phpmyadmin3.3.9/"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride all Order Deny,Allow Allow from 127.0.0.1 Allow from <my_public_static_IP_address_also_address_of_server> Deny from all </Directory>
I try to access phpMyAdmin from a domain that I set up from No-Ip.com. The domain is configured to route to my development machine like so:
- Make the request:
- Forwarded to:
- Router receives the request public request and forwards it to:
In the end, I get a 403 Forbidden error. My server is configured for access online, as going to
example.no-ip.org:256 will take you to my homepage (well, if that were actually my domain :D).
Again, just to be clear, the computer I am making the request from is also the Apache server.
Any ideas on what may be causing this?
