I don't run PHPMyAdmin, I connect to my MySQL over SSH and obviously run SSH
on an alternative port and don't allow root log-ins.

But I do have some fun with those that try and snoop for URL's like
/Php-my-admin, /p/m/a, /admin, /sqlweb, etc, etc. If I see something new
show up, I add it. I redirect them through ReWrite rules to a RewriteRule .*
