Enhancing PhPMyAdmin Integration for Manual External Database Login

Problem Statement:
Currently, CyberPanel’s PhPMyAdmin integration only supports auto-login functionality, limiting users’ ability to manually log in to external databases.
This restricts flexibility and control, especially in scenarios where manual authentication is preferred or required.

Introduce a feature enhancement to enable manual login functionality for external databases within PhPMyAdmin.
This enhancement would empower users to authenticate with external databases using the “Cookie” authentication type instead of being limited to the current “signon” authentication method.

Implementation Plan:

  1. Configuration Option: Introduce a configuration option within CyberPanel to specify the authentication type for PhPMyAdmin. This option would allow users to select between “Cookie” and “signon” authentication methods.
  2. User Interface Update: Modify the PhPMyAdmin interface to accommodate manual login functionality. This may involve adding a login form or interface elements to prompt users for their credentials when accessing external databases.
  3. Backend Integration: Ensure seamless integration between the PhPMyAdmin interface and CyberPanel’s backend systems to securely handle manual authentication requests. Implement robust error handling and security measures to safeguard sensitive information.
  4. Testing and Quality Assurance: Conduct thorough testing of the new functionality to validate its reliability, security, and user experience. Address any bugs or issues identified during testing before releasing the feature to users.

Expected Benefits:

  • Enhanced Flexibility: Users gain the ability to manually log in to external databases, offering greater control and flexibility over database access.
  • Improved Security: By supporting multiple authentication methods, including “Cookie” authentication, users can choose the most suitable option based on their security requirements.
  • Increased User Satisfaction: Addressing this feature request demonstrates responsiveness to user feedback and enhances the overall user experience within CyberPanel.

Conclusion: Implementing this feature enhancement would align with CyberPanel’s commitment to providing robust and user-friendly solutions, further enhancing its appeal to users seeking comprehensive database management capabilities.
