PHP path not correct in phpMyAdmin (cgi.fix_pathinfo)
September 24, 2012 11:22PM

I am having a path problem with php-fpm and nginx.I installed phpMyAdmin, but when I try and login, the path get's set incorrectly. For example the url is:


That works, it loads the login page, but when I click login, the path gets set incorrectly to:

http://web1.mydomain.com/index.php?token= gUTHUPhezetratRaRuBatheyuphac4pA

If I toggle the php setting `cgi.fix_pathinfo` to 1, then the path is right in phpMyAdmin and phpMyAdmin works, but this breaks other PHP applications on the server. So, I set `cgi.fix_pathinfo` back to 0, which is better for security anyway.

Any idea how I can fix this so phpMyAdmin works, but also does not break other PHP applications?

You should NOT use cgi.fix_pathinfo=1 due to security reasons, unless you absolutely sure that your nginx.conf rules will prohibit execution of non existant files such as guest uploaded mycoolavatar.gif/hack.php , where mycoolavatar.gif may contain PHP code which will be executed by php.

As for PHPMyAdmin - i dont use any special config for it for nginx+php-fpm, it just works outta tha box )

Interesting. Here is my nginx config, do you see anything that would be causing the problem?


The root is set at /srv/www but the path to phpMyAdmin is /srv/www/phpMyAdmin I do this because there are other utility apps served from /srv/www.
