htaccess file to restrict Godaddy

Friday, April 30th, 2010

I’m using this to lock a directory of assets for a client on a godaddy hosting plan:

order deny,allow
allow from localhost
deny from all

and then accessing files there from with a php file that checks their Zend logged in/file permissions etc.
(search this blog for “file serve” in content to find the php script)


phpMyAdmin Server remote database connection

Monday, March 15th, 2010


add this (or similar) at the bottom:


$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘auth_type’] = ‘config’;
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘user’] = ‘user’;
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘password’] = ‘password’;
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘host’] = ‘your_host’;
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘verbose’] = ‘Description to appear in phpMyAdmin’;



And then control remote MySQL databases in your localhost/phpmyadmin

under Actions: Server: dropdown

*note: When connecting to a Godaddy DB, you must enable accessible remotely when creating the database!
