Sir gave us a new task. I made a form with php bindings in it .Though I wasn’t successful in completing the task,but I learned many new things.
Then I started installing phpmyadmin. Here are my notes:
phpMyAdmin is an free web software to work with MySQL on the web—it provides a convenient visual front end to the MySQL capabilities.
Phpmyadmin is a free tool used to administrative MySQL database in a GUI mode ( Using web browser ) . You can perform almost all the major tasks like creating , deleting and modifying databases, tables, rows etc.
In order to install phpmyadmin,you need following three packages. These are:
Open terminal and write following command on terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install apache2
Open /etc/apache2/httpd.conf . Add the following line “ServerName localhost” .
Now,restart the Apache service with following command:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Now,paste your ip on browser.You can see the apache2 test page.
Install Mysql server by typing the below command in terminal .
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server
Now, window asking for password will appear.
Now after installation is complete, check for database connection by following command:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/mysql status
mysql start/running, process 12429
To install it, put this command on terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install php5 php5-mysql
Now to show php configuration,create file and paste the command below there.
Goto the default apache root path /var/www . create a new file phpinfo.php and paste the below code and save it.
Use this command to restart the apache2
$sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Now open the browser with http://yourip/phpinfo.php
You can see window like this:
Testing all together:
Create a new file dbtest.php in the apache root path (/var/www) and paste the below code .Replace “password” with your mysql root password provided during mysql installation .
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","root","password");
die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
echo "Yippeee!gurpinder's connection established successfully";
open the file in your browser ( http://yourip/dbtest.php ). you can see the page as below.
After installing apache2, mysql and php, you can continue with the below steps to install and configure phpmyadmin.
Update with following command :
$ sudo apt-get update
To install phpmyadmin,give following command on terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
You will prompted to choose the type of web server for phpmyadmin . just choose “apache2″ (use space bar and enter key for selecting ).
now open the path “http://localhost/phpmyadmin” in the browser , you will prompted for username and password.
