Went through the apache logs on my web-server and saw some access requests to my phpmyadmin page.
It’s probably a good idea to restrict access to this web based sql admin interface (in case there is an exploit I don’t want somebody to use it on this).
How to make phpmyadmin a bit more secure
sudo vi /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf
sudo nano /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf
Under “Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin”
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
Allow from 192.168.0.0/24
This will let your vm access the /phpmyadmin part and also anything with an IP on the 192.168.0.0/24 network.
Also, up there in the alias where it first says /phpmyadmin – change this to something else like “Alias /youcannotguessthis /usr/share/phpmyadmin” and it will be a lot harder for automatic scanners to find it.
