The Cluster Database

3.2. The Cluster Database

This web application allows you to view and edit the active Rocks SQL database. Rocks uses this database to store data about its configuration, and information about the nodes in this cluster. See the Rocks Cluster Schema page for a description of this database's structure and semantics.

The web database application will allow Queries, Inserts, Updates, and Deletes to the active database. Any changes made via the web application will be immediately visible to any services that consult the database. Because of this ability, we restrict access to this page to only hosts on the internal network. To enable extended access to the database web application, edit the /etc/httpd/conf/rocks.conf file as follows.

<Directory "/var/www/html/admin/phpMyAdmin">
        Options FollowSymLinks Indexes ExecCGI
        AllowOverride None
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from
        Deny from all

Add additional "Allow" directives in this section to specify which additional hosts will be given access to the web database application. The format for the Allow directive is available in the Apache Manual.

The PhpMyAdmin web application was designed by Tobias Ratschiller ( in 1998, and is released through under the GPL liscence.
