Greetings to everyone!
Is it possible to configure phpMyAdmin to only allow one user with a specific username to log in? Or may be is there a php file where I could add some code?

Info: phpMyAdmin-2.6.0-pl2 (just uploaded)

If you mean that only one user will be able to login into phpMyAdmin then you only need to configure Users in phpMyAdmin..

Otherwise.... Redcircle is right..

Thank you for your responses.

I never thought of using .htaccess, it would do the job. My actual problem is that the root user does not have a password, and I am not the admin, so I can't change that. So anybody could log in and do whatever they want too. One user was set up with a password, this is the only user I want to use through phpMyAdmin.

Would it be a solution to add this to the top of index.php?

Code: Select all

if (isset($_REQUEST['pma_username']))
          if ($_REQUEST['pma_username'] != 'myuser')
                    header("Location: http://fullpath/index.php");

**I tested my code and it works, but I'm not sure whether it can be bypassed.
