    Remote Access to PHPMyAdmin

    IE, not within localhost.

    What is the config file to change, I think I remember it to be a fairly small file, I just don't remember the file name or where it is.

    Can anyone help?

    OK. So on what system do you have phpMyAdmin installed on? What system is the actual database running on?

    As i already know your using wAMP you need to change the access to the phpMyAdmin directory from
    Code:
    <Directory DIRECTORY NAME>
      Order Deny,Allow
      Deny from all
      Allow from localhost
    </Directory>
    To
    Code:
    <Directory DIRECTORY NAME>
      Order Allow,Deny
      Allow from all
    </Directory>
    You should be able to find this by clicking on the system tray icon and going onto the 'Edit Alias' section on the alias's menu

    Hope That Helps

    check phpMyAdmin/config.inc
    Starting from
    * Server(s) configuration
    to get in-depth configuration options

    But remember!
    XAMPP is only meant for local developing!
    If u open it to the public u might get hacked within minutes.

    To have phpmyadmin work properly from a remote host, you also need to ensure that in the phpmyadmin config file that you use your outside IP address (not 127.0.0.1 or 'localhost') look for this line:
    $cfg['PmaAbsoluteUri'] = 'URL or IP address here/phpmyadmin/';

    the file is config.inc.php
