PhpMyAdmin is a MySQL administration Web interface written in PHP. Starting with H-Sphere 2.5, it is installed with MySQL server as a hsphere-phpmyadmin-<version>-<build> package, where <version> is PhpMyAdmin version, and <build> is this package's build number.

In H-Sphere versions earlier than 2.5, PhpMyAdmin is installed as a tarball to a Web server whose logical server id is specified in the PHP_MY_ADMIN_HOST property in the ~cpanel/shiva/psoft_config/ file. Usually, it is the first Web server added to the system.


PhpMyAdmin installation directory is /hsphere/shared/apache/htdocs/phpMyAdmin.
