Installing and configuring phpPgAdmin in CentOS

Follow below steps to install and configure phpPgAdmin:

1. Firstly, type in the following command to install the required package:

yum install phpPgAdmin

2. Before editing the phpPgAdmin main configuration, make a backup of it first:

cp /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpPgAdmin.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpPgAdmin.conf.BAK

3. Allowing remote access to phpPgAdmin is very similar to phpMyAdmin.

Here you can also add a Require ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/XX line with your defined subnet’s network address below the line Require local in the phpPgAdmin.conf file, or use the sed utility to do this automatically for you:

sed -i "s,\(Require local\),\1\nRequire ip $NET,g"

4. Then, restart Apache and browse to the phpPgAdmin main page:


How to allow remote access to PostgreSQL server on a Plesk server?

1. Firstly, connect to the PostgreSQL server via SSH.

2. Get location of postgresql.conf file by executing the command (it should be something like /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf):

# psql -U postgres -c ‘SHOW config_file’

3. Then, open postgresql.conf file and add the following line to the end:

listen_addresses = ‘*’

4. Get the location of pg_hba.conf file:

# grep pg_hba.conf /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf

where /var/lib/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf is the file from output of step 2

5. Next, add the following line to the end of /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf file:

host samerole all md5

  • is the remote IP from which connection is allowed. If you want to allow connection from any IP specify .
  • md5 is the authentication method, which requires the client to supply a double-MD5-hashed password for authentication.
  • User john.doe from database example1 has access to database example1 only.

6. Finally, restart PostgreSQL server to apply the changes: Plesk > Tools & Settings > Services
