Pre-install phpmyadmin

That all DO web based droplets have php myadmin installed by default, as there are with either turnkey linux or amazon ami imanges, so to streamline droplet creation so as not to have to install phpmyadmin everytime a droplet requires it

    Admin Response

    Hi all, We've recently added a PHPMyAdmin application image along side of our existing LAMP image. Both options are now available for use in the control panel under "Applications." Thanks for all the feedback!

    but during droplet installation you can just click and install it. NO?!

    perhaps included in LAMP droplets? I am not sure I would want this on a bare-bones new droplet.

    By this logic, we should include WordPress, Drupal, and every other PHP-based web application in case someone needs it.

    Maybe as an option... but this isn't really necessary.

    To be clear, if anything this should only be an option, not EVERY droplet. Not everyone uses PHP or MySQL. That's probably obvious but the original poster said "all" droplets.

    I agree with you that this software make it easier for beginners. Note that not all web nodes have a database(mysql) installed, too.
    Some body split this services to different nodes the db or clusted them on multible. But I think you mean only for OnClick Applications, right?

    If yes this can be a good idea to give the ability to install this on creation, but not by default.
    I think this must be only a option. Phpmyadmin and equal admin software has unknown security holes as any other Software.
    So any droplets must update this software continuously this can be a very painfull.

    On the other hand I don't want any kind of software on my droplets, that is not defined by my dockerfiles.

    PS: for Debian "apt-get install phpmyadmin" is a very short line ;)

    best regards
