When dealing with database driven websites you probably (like me) use phpMyAdmin to manage and maintain your database(s). Below is a few useful “one-liners” gathered over the years…
Modifying the configuration settings
By modifying config.inc.php in the root directory where you installed phpMyAdmin you can add numerous additional functions and features. All it takes is adding a line or two.
$cfg['ThemeDefault'] = 'some_theme';
Link to phpinfo()
$cfg['ShowPhpInfo'] = TRUE;
“Show all” rows button
$cfg['ShowAll'] = TRUE;
Hide databases from the menu
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['hide_db'] = '(test|mysql|etc...)';
Setting the fontsize
if ( !isset($_COOKIE['pma_fontsize']) ) : $_GET['fontsize'] = "80%"; # Whatever size you like endif;
More options are available by browsing libraries/config.default.php which is very well documented.
