Enabling phpMyAdmin for MySQL Administration:

phpMyAdmin – popular tool written in PHP to handle MySQL administation over the web – is bundled within this AMI. However, for security purposes, 'phpMyAdmin' application is 'disabled' by default within this AMI. Users are strongly urged to protect their MySQL 'root' user with a proper password before enabling this application.

  • Secure your MySQL database by doing some thing like

    • /usr/mysql/5.0/bin/mysql -u root -p password <give a new password>

  • Un-comment the following line in /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf

Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/phpmyadmin

  • Restart Apache Service by doing some thing like

  • Now, access phpMyAdmin application over the web by visiting

    • http://<dns name associated with this AMI>/phpmyadmin . Will need to login with a valid MySQL database's user name and password.


Configuring Joomla:

  • Joomla (bundled within this AMI in pre-configured state) is available under location /var/joomla

  • Joomla recommends having a database protected with a valid user name and password to be created on the system before configuring Joomla. Hence, users are advised to either use 'ssh' to login to your AMI or phpMyAdmin to create such database before proceeding to configuring Joomla. For more information, refer to MySQL documentation by visiting here

  • Joomla specific configuration for Apache Web Server is available within /etc/apache2/2.2/conf.d/joomla.conf .

  • Users can launch and configure Joomla by accessing http://<DNS name associated with the instance>/joomla in their browser.
