    Best place to install phpMyAdmin

    I would like to install phpMyAdmin on my RaQ to administer MySQL databases on all my virtual sites.

    I am concerned about security and can't decide where to install it.

    Should it be installed in a subdirectory of one of my virtual sites or should I create a sub directory on my main server "site".

    Does anyone know how secure htaccess/htpassword is?

    Any help appreciated

    There are a couple of package versions of it available:

    which allows all your users access.

    Thanks for that.

    I don't really have a requirement to give users access to MySQL I usually design a GUI to enable them to make simple content changes to the database.

    I just want to know if there is any place on the server that is any safer than another from a security point of view. I would sort of like to put it in my main server web site in a new directory because I am assuming it is less likely to be stumbled upon, but I am a little nervous about using htaccess and htpasswd in that in case I get it wrong!

    Am i worrying too much?

    Depending on the configuration you choose you can easily set it up behind .htaccess for the directory and then using cookies to access the actual interface.
