PhpMyAdmin behind Istio Proxy Not Working

I need an Admin app running in my Istio mesh or I will need to swap out Istio for another Ingress like nginx. In this case the client has an MySQL database and needs to add data to the database. So I cannot spend weeks fixing the proxying issue of PhpMyAdmin. It has this issue behind proxies. I have used the deployment to set the environment variable for the absolute URI but it still produces the error message.

Is anyone else here possibly running a MySQL database with some PhpMyAdmin behind Istio proxy. Or do you know another equivalent admin app I can run?

thanks. looks like on option is port forwarding mysql and connecting to it from localhost using mysqlworkbench.
