Ubuntu: How to access phpMyAdmin after installation?



Question:

I've installed phpmyadmin sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin. Of course, I have also mysql and a web server running properly.

Now how can I reach it?


Solution:1

Did you try http://localhost/phpmyadmin?

Edit: Do this first

sudo -H gedit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf  

add this line somewhere

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf  

and finally restart apache.

sudo service apache2 restart  


Solution:2

You probably skiped the configure from the package.

Try this cli:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin  

And when it choose the webserver to configure, select apache.


Solution:3

It depends on your configuration.

From my experience, I may reach with localhost/phpmyadmin but fail to login, I have to reconfigure phpmyadmin, reset MySQL password, and then I may login without problems.

  1. Reconfigure phpmyadmin
  2. Ctrl+Alt+t to launch terminal
  3. sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin
  4. Connection method for MySQL database for phpmyadmin: unix socket
  5. Name of the database's administrative user: root
  6. Password of the database's administrative user: mysqlsamplepassword
  7. MySQL username for phpmyadmin: root
  8. MySQL database name for phpmyadmin: phpmyadmin
  9. Web server to reconfigure automatically: apache2
  10. ERROR 1045
  11. ignore
  12. sudo dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-5.5
  13. New password for the MySQL "root" user: mysqlsamplepassword
  14. Repeat password for the MySQL "root" user: mysqlsamplepassword

But if your problem is fail to interpret php, follow the instruction to enable your php first.

  1. sudo gedit /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.conf
  2. look for php_admin_value engine off, between and
  3. Add # in front of php_admin_value engine off to disable it.
  4. REMEMBER! Don't change the value php_admin_value engine from off to on!
  5. sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Wish it helps!

Have a nice day!
