Change Port Apache Virtual Server

Recommended Posts


Just trying to change the port that Phpmyadmin runs on so that I can block it from my firewall.

currently it is running on port 80 and I want to change it to something else. I'm running Ubuntu server and I found the Apache Files to be under /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf. In here I tried to add a Virtual server and it appears to be working on the specified port yet it still works on port 80.

# phpMyAdmin default Apache configuration

listen 8050

Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

NameVirtualHost *:8050

<VirtualHost *:8050>

<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin>

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

DirectoryIndex index.php

<IfModule mod_php5.c>

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off

php_flag track_vars On

php_flag register_globals Off

php_value include_path .




# Authorize for setup

<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin/setup>

<IfModule mod_authn_file.c>

AuthType Basic

AuthName "phpMyAdmin Setup"

AuthUserFile /etc/phpmyadmin/htpasswd.setup


Require valid-user


# Disallow web access to directories that don't need it

<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin/libraries>

Order Deny,Allow

Deny from All


<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin/setup/lib>

Order Deny,Allow

Deny from All
