2011-02-09 I wanted a global option to deny access ...
I wanted a global option to deny access to any phpmyadmin url in an apache config. We are migrating long-existing websites with sometimes old content to new hardware and storage. And in the far past some people installed phpmyadmin. With good reasons back then but phpmyadmin has quite a list of security issues. They all get fixed, but we have to hunt down the old versions. So as a stopgap I want to disable all urls on all vhosts which include /phpmyadmin. Global config:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule /phpmyadmin - [F,NC,L]
But this isn't inherited by VirtualHosts immediately, as documented in mod_rewrite and vhosts - Apache HTTP server documentation. I need to configure each vhost to inherit the global rewriterules:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteOptions Inherit
