Hi all, a ISPConfig newbie here. First of all, I wanna thank all those who help make this forum a great place for finding answers to all things regarding Linux. I have personally learned quite a bit from reading threads here, and I hope to learn a great more so that I can begin to contribute to this place as well. Good works all! Here are my questions, and any advice is much appreciated: I have ISPConfig set up behind IPCop. I have installed PhpMyAdmin and created users (ie, web1_u1, so on) and databases for those users. (1) How to I hide the "information_schema" from users (ie, like web1_u1) in the left-hand side drop-down menu inside PhpMyAdmin? I have tried editting /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php by inserting the following line for $i = 1: $cfg['Servers'][$i]['hide_db'] = 'information_schema'; Then I restarted MySQL, only to find out that line apparently does not have any effect on the drop-down menu. Then I changed $cfg['Servers'][$i]['only_db'] = ''; to $cfg['Servers'][$i]['only_db'] = 'web%'; That seems to work; it hides every database whose name does not begin with "web". But it does that too when you log in as root. Initially database "mysql" and "db_ispconfig" are also hidden from users, so I am sure there must be a place where I can add "information_schema" to that list of hidden db. Does anyone know where that place is? (2) I use Phpmaker and was trying to connect to my MySQL database behind IPCop (port 3306 forwarded) from an outside IP. That didn't work no matter what I did. My question is: port 3306 should be open by default after I installed ISPConfig, right? Now it looks like the only way to manipulate my databases (other than thru terminal) is thru PhpMyAdmin, which is ok to me, just I am paranoid about something not working when I think it's supposed to. Thanks in advance!!!
