Afraid I need a little more detail on this.  Been trying to make
things work as I think is meant but nothing clicks.  Right now I'm
going https to phpMyAdmin on the server.

The server is iptable firewalled and I have ssl and sftp too.  It's
that 'socket' stuff I don't know about.  Might be practically there
but I can't see it yet.    

Thanks for the assistance.
