Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

  • port: The database port.
  • username: The database username.
  • password: The database password
  • hide_dbs: An array of databases we do not want to be shown. This will be concatenated in a form of 'db1|db2$' etc.

  • pma_password: If you have configured your database server for PMA, you can define here the PMA password


This cookbook defines a phpmyadmin_pmadb LWRP for dynamically defining the control databases of PHPMyAdmin for earch server. This LWRP allows the following methods:

The cookbook installs the selected PMA version to /opt/phpmyadmin (or anywhere else you may have defined in the 'home' attribute) and optionally defines an FPM pool for NGINX or Apache2/mod_fcgid

To define a database config you can use the phpmyadmin_db LWRP such as:

phpmyadmin_db 'Test DB' do
    host ''
    port 3306
    username 'root'
    password 'password'
    hide_dbs %w{ information_schema mysql phpmyadmin performance_schema }

This will create a file in /opt/phpmyadmin/conf.d/ and will be automatically included when you display the PMA page.
