Unable to access phpmyadmin in browser


I've installed phpmyadmin using the command apt-get install phpmyadmin, however am unable to open its login page in my web-browser when I type http://localhost/phpmyadmin
Installation was done properly and I can view the MySQL server from the webmin page.

Error is:

Not Found

The requested URL /phpmyadmin was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.16 (Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80

Anyone knows how to make the phpmyadmin page load?


It depends on your directory structure.

Issue this command to find your base directory:

~# cat /etc/apache2/sites-available/default | grep DocumentRoot

For example, if your document root is set as /var/www/htdocs

Then the URL localhost/phpmyadmin would mean that the phpmyadmin folder is located in /var/www/htdocs. If the phhpmyadmin folder isn't in there, then your path is wrong.

Hope that makes sense,


Finally figured out had to use this command instead to solve the problem, and needed to reload apache2 :

sudo ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
