Adminer is a web-based database management tool written in PHP. It is possible to manage MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sqlite3, MS SQL, Oracle database and Elasticsearch.

It is a simpler alternative to PhpMyAdmin. You can find more pieces of information about this project at the official page or at Wikipedia.


Install the adminerAUR package or download Adminer and place it manually in the document-root instead.

When using the adminerAUR package, Adminer will be installed as /usr/share/webapps/adminer/index.php.

Ensure the correct extensions in /etc/php/php.ini are uncommented, e.g. extension=pdo_mysql should provide MySQL database management.



Note: Ensure that the PHP extension for Apache is properly configured

Add the following line to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:

Include conf/extra/httpd-adminer.conf

Then restart your Apache HTTP Server daemon.

Adminer can now be accessed by browsing to http://localhost/adminer.


Note: Ensure that the PHP FastCGI interface has been configured correctly.

Create a server entry using /usr/share/webapps/adminer as root:

server {
    listen 443 ssl http2;
    listen [::]:443 ssl http2;

    server_name adminer.domain;
    root /usr/share/webapps/adminer;

    # Only allow certain IPs 
    #deny all;

    index index.php;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

    error_page 404 /index.php;

    # PHP configuration
    location ~ \.php$ {

Symlink adminer.conf to sites-enabled and restart nginx.


Ensure that the PHP FastCGI interface is configured correctly.

Then add the following VirtualHost block to your /etc/hiawatha/hiawatha.conf.

VirtualHost {

    # If you set WebsiteRoot to /usr/share/webapps/adminer you do not need followsymlinks
    # I symlinked the adminer folder to '/srv/http/adminer' so that I can easily remember where it's located but
    # still set 'WebsiteRoot' to the real source directory. You could point WebsiteRoot to the
    # symlinked directory, but you will have to set 'FollowSymlinks = yes' for that to function properly

    Hostname = db.domainname.dom
    #FollowSymlinks = yes
    #WebsiteRoot = /srv/http/adminer
    WebsiteRoot = /usr/share/webapps/adminer
    AccessLogfile = /var/log/hiawatha/adminer/access.log
    ErrorLogfile = /var/log/hiawatha/adminer/error.log
    StartFile = index.php
    UseFastCGI = PHP7


Then restart the hiawatha.service.
