Option not to install phpmyadmin?


Is there an option not to install phpmyadmin when setting up Hestia?

I’m using Debian 10.

Thanks :slight_smile:

No, hestia will always install the latest version of pma. You can disable it, when you remove the alias config in: /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf and/or /etc/nginx/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf

Would removing phpmyadmin from the list of software in the script prevent it from installing?

elif [ “$release” -eq 10 ]; then

No, it would remove it not properly. You would also need the phpmyadmin related parts in the script - but this isnt tested at all and I do not recommend it.

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

Can I change the phpmyadmin url and add ssl instead to make it a bit more secure?

Checkout v-add-letsencrypt-host command, it will add you let’s encrypt for your hostname, which will used then by hestia backend, dovecot, exim and ftp service. Then you can access phpmyadmin over https://hostname/phpmyadmin.

For change phpmyadmin name, checkout the command v-change-sys-pma newalias (not full url, only alias like pma).

Great, thanks!

Really like the work you guys have done on the control panel :slight_smile:

+1 for removal for me.

For years I’ve been using Adminer - 300kb of PHP vs several megs of PMA and regularly updated.

if removing the alias or full pma configs from nginx/apache does not satisfy your needs in disabling it, I am pretty sure on top you can remove the package via apt, if you don’t want to have it laying around.

afaik that should not really break anything (other than the button in the GUI that links to it), however do at your own risk and know how to handle errors if the webserver won’t restart because of a missing path and such.

TL;DR; shouldn’t be too hard to remove it after the install manually if you know what you are doing :wink:
