Did you compile from source. If so, check if there is a package available for your system. I know debian based distros have this already nicely packaged and it work great out of the box.

No I didn't compiled but I did install alonged using yum and it does it all.

anyway i had got that solved by placing this line.

# php_admin_value open_basedir none

this line i have placed into /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf but now i am getting strang error. I have my root password set to testing and my i am not able to connect to my this server from network using http://localhost/somesite than it gives following error.

Error: "Could not able to connect database host"

So I double check the error file at tail -f /var/log/httpd/error-log and I got below lines.

[Mon Apr 02 11:13:15 2012] [error] [client] PHP Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in /var/www/html/somesite/include/connection.php on line 2

I have set the rights and priveleges to the root users but still it will not allow me to do mysql -v from command line it gives below error

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Can you help me with this?

Does it log in from the localhost.

I do not know exactly about mysql, I normally only run mysql on the server running the webserver so it is seen as a local connection and works. I do have one machine setup to use postgresql over the network, but to enable connectivity, I had to change config files to allow connections from other machines.

Maybe SQL requires something similar. It also appears that it is trying to send just a login without password from that error, this will result in no connection if you have a root password.

Alternatively if the local test has passed, create a bogus user in mysql and do not set a password. Use that user to try to login in the way you are now and then see if it still gives you the same error.

To all members thanks for time.

But i reformatted machine again.

I got sick again for not getting the results and i had to reformat it. because since last 2 months i am searching one or two solutions and if i patch 1 than another gets broken.

i have used pclinux, fedora 4, 6, 8, 12, 14 but never faced this type of issues which i am facing in 16

the SELinux suck!! sorry but this is truth. maybe it is helping us by securing but it bogs down performance.

So i reformatted and stopped selinux and ipv6 and started configuring it.

lets close this thread here and i need any other help than i am posting my requirement or whereever helps is required into this area.

But big thanks to all.

You should not feel that i have not replied in appropriate manner, so i am explaining myself here in this last message.

thank you,


httpd, phpmyadmin
