I just installed phpmyadmin with sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin but now I can't figure out how to get it started. The installation did place a phpmyadmin directory in /etc/ but I don't have anything in /var/www/html/ . I installed this several years ago and it placed a start icon in my start menu but it didn't do that this time. How do I get phpmyadmin to start in the web browser if there are no phpmyadmin files in the apache directory?
In particular follow the instructions for Ubuntu 13.10+, you have to include the configuration file into the server, the guide refers to Apache.
Anyway, I prefer to install it directly from source, to get the latest version. Just uncrompress to a directory in /var/www/, assign a local domain (for example phpmyadmin.sql) and follow the setup guide from PHPMyAdmin.
