phpMyAdmin is a great tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL or MariaDB with the use of a web browser. For security reasons I have been using it over https. Till version 4.6.0 you could force using https instead of http with just configuring the config.inc.php
I was trying to migrate a private chef server from ubuntu 12.04 to ubuntu 14.04 . I thought that it would be great to use Alternate Names in the certificate that I would be issuing. The certificate would be self signed but one of the issues I have faced was that ssl verification failed from the client and as reported by knife ssl check.
