Forcing SSL for phpMyAdmin

After configuring WordPress to force SSL in the administration area, I was in phpMyAdmin and realized that it’s also not configured to do the same by default.

From the phpMyAdmin Wiki, add the following line at the end of your /etc/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php file

$cfg['ForceSSL'] = TRUE;

This will cause sessions to force SSL.

Questions, comments, and feedback are welcome.
