Firstly, you probably meant $SERVER_ADDR instead of $REMOTE_ADDR, as
$REMOTE_ADDR is the address that the browser is going from.

Even if you changed that to $SERVER_ADDR, it will not always work, as
$SERVER_ADDR is an IP, and the site may be using name based vhosts.

Observe my domain for example:

Rather than any of these solutions, look at the Documentation.html file
for the proper solution:

cfgPmaAbsoluteUri = (!empty($HTTPS) ? 'https' : 'http') . '://' .
$SERVER_NAME . (!empty($SERVER_PORT) ? ':' . SERVER_PORT : '')
. substr($SCRIPT_NAME, 0, strrpos($SCRIPT_NAME, '/')+1);
