    I generated certificate at and used it on 8080 port changes ispconfig.vhost to use certificate. (segure open ssl).

    Im using debian and phpmyadmin package don´t have autoconfigurations to put phpmyadmin alias to https. Only for http.

    It´s make sense for use the same certificate if ispconfig operates with ssl put phpmyadmin alias on same virtual host used by ispconfig.

    phpmyadmin and ispconfig can share the same host and certificate and all operate on secure connections. because both sending password over networks.

    Im copy and paste /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf on
    /etc/apache2/sites-available/ispconfig.vhost now works perfectlly.

    i modified the file on /interface/web/sites/database_phpmyadmin.php to reflect this modifications and tested on debian not on another distros and uploaded to svn.

    isset($_SERVER['HTTPS'])? $http = 'https' : $http = 'http';
    ($_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] != '80' and $http == 'https')? $serverPort = ':'.$_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] : $serverPort = '';
    If using segure conections phpmyadmin alias not configured on 443 port (apache2) by default to recive url rediretion. The idea is put alias on same ispconfig host if you using ispconfig with ssl.

    Another sugestion is if ispconfig is on https redirect to phpmyadmin on http.
    I belive keep all on secure connection it´s better way.

    Please give-me a feedback of this modifications, i considered it´s make more sense about phpmyadmin and work with ispconfig.

    It´s a simple modification at the end of file but i can not check impact of this modification on another distros.

    Sugestions and comments will be apreciated. :)

    This configuration will not work when ispconfig is running as php-fcgi. You can try this by disabling mod_php in apache. Also we have not used this configuration to separate ISPConfig from phpmyadmin so the system can not be compromised by a phpmyadmin bug.

    Dedicated vhost with mod_php for phpmyadmin on another port with same address and certificate is one way.

    Take more liberty to admin choose a url location of phpmyadmin and configure vhost manually to do it.

    Options on config at panel to specify a url of phpmyadmin. it´s a great idea no?


    Options on file to set a url of phpmyadmin it´s more elegant way to solve this issue.

    Whats you think about this?
