Hello Sir/Madam,

I have installed phpMyAdmin on my Linux CentOS 6 for quite some time.

I had double secured it with .htaccess file in /usr/share/phpMyAdmin

And I have suitably modified /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpMyAdmin.conf like this:

<Directory /usr/share/phpMyAdmin/>

AllowOverride AuthConfig
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

I regularly do yum update and after my phpMyAdmin upgraded to 3.5.3, this password protection stopped working and NOT ONLY That but it also causes, phpMyAdmin not opening until, you delete .htaccess file from /usr/share/phpMyAdmin

I feel insecure without having .htaccess protection.

Other relevant details are as under:

OS CentOS 6 64 bit architecture
PHP version 5.3.3
My SQL Version 5.1.61
PhpMyAdmin Version 3.5.3

Thanking you.

    Please ask your vendor (CentOS in this case) for support. This configuration file is made by them and not shipped with phpMyAdmin.

    Respected Sir/Madam,

    I was not expecting this kind of reply from you.

    My server was configured long ago. And phpMyAdmin was working FINE.

    Once, I did yum update and phpMyAdmin upgraded to 3.5.3, it stopped working.

    After doing some research, I came to know that it's having conflict with .htaccess and if .htaccess is deleted, phpMyAdmin works Fine.

    I have cookie based login authentication for phpMyAdmin.

    It seems that two authentication mess up things and phpMyAdmin is unable to identify correct password supplied.

    I hope that you will make some attempt to first identify this issue and then to resolve it.

    Thanking you

    Regards,
    Hemang Shah

    You did not use phpMyAdmin tarballs we distribute, but rather packages from your distribution, which have some extra configuration. We can not support this as we have no idea what they are actually shipping, so please use Fedora support channels and ask them.

    Ah sorry, I meant CentOS support.

    While I understand your desire to get support for your issue, I've just tested the configuration you describe using the official release and there is no problem, confirming that the CentOS folks have made some modification that is interfering with your configuration. Good luck.
