phpMyAdmin Server config.inc.php remote database connection

C:\xampp\phpMyAdmin\config.inc.php

add this (or similar) at the bottom:

$i++;

$cfg[‘Servers’][$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’;

//end

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!
