Step 4. Configure phpmyadmin

Before we can use phpmyadmin, we need to configure some other things. Edit the phpmyadmin.conf underĀ /etc/httpd/conf.d/

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf

Now find any lines that say:

Require ip
Require ip ::1

And change them to this one. This will enable access from any IP addresses.

Require all granted

So it should looks like this:

<IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
     # Apache 2.4
       Require all granted

Now restart Apache web server

systemctl restart httpd

Now we can open PHPMyAdmin via web browser. Type the CentOS Ip address with the following format
