Adding phpMyAdmin to your existing project is easy! It can accomplished with the following:

1. Clone into the repo into our project structure, followed by removing the .git repository directory.

$ git clone https://github.com/dotcloud/phpmyadmin-on-dotcloud phpmyadmin
$ rm -rf phpmyadmin/.git
  1. Edit the dotcloud.yml file to add the http interface.
db:           # Your existing database
  type: mysql #
pma:          # <-- new
  type: php   # <-- new
approot:      # <-- new
  phpmyadmin  # <-- new
  1. dotcloud push!
`dotcloud push <application>`


The phpmyadmin recipe finds the mysql databases that are located within the environment.json file. No additional web configuration is required. Basically, each mysql database in your dotcloud.yml file will be picked up by the phpMyAdmin recipe dynamically.


Using the phpMyAdmin is out of scope for this example as it assumes you already know how to use it. There’s a few tutorials which can be found with a quick google search, one such can be found here.
