    Can i access phpmyadmin without logging into the plesk server admin control panel by some url i.e. Domain.com/phpMyAdmin ?

    You can if you install a separate standalone copy of phpMyAdmin. The one which the Plesk CP uses you would have to login first.

    Download and install phpMyAdmin (latest version), install it into a directory under your domain's httpsdocs (SSL) folder (safer than the non-SSL). Such as:


    Then as an added security, I would password protect access to that directory as well.

    Or (I haven't tried this.. but) you could add "phpmyadmin.domain." to point to "phpmyadmin.<hostname of your server>." in the dns template, and then make a global phpmyadmin directory somewhere on your server, add the "phpmyadmin.<hostname of your server>" subdomain to point to that directory.

    Use cookie/session auth on phpmyadmin. Now anyone that goes to phpmyadmin.theirdomain.com should get to that installation of phpmyadmin. They then enter their own credentials and it will bring up their own databases, and look like its a personalised version.

    I say again, I haven't tried this but it should be doable. Especially with the new auto base URL detection that the new phpmyadmin's use.

    Think I'll try this when i get back from work.

    Can one enter the admin username and password and get access to all of the databases or just best entering just the one?

    If you login using 'admin' and password, then you (or the client) will be able to see/access all databases.
