Install and Configure phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu LAMP

PhpMyAdmin is a nice database management and administration tool, it is easy to install it, but some people are having problems making it work under apache, that’s because it needs configuration. I presume you already have LAMP installed and configured on your machine, if not, please read this post – Install and Configure LAMP on Ubuntu first.

Just in case you haven’t installed phpMyAdmin yet, type the following line in the Terminal:
apt-get install phpmyadmin

To set up under Apache all you need to do is include the following line in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, first type the following command to open up this file:
gksudo gedit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Add the following line of code inside apache2.conf:
Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

Now restart Apache:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Point your browser to: http://domain/phpmyadmin, you should be able to see the phpMyAdmin landing page now!

  29. rio says:

    after do that
    /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
    The Alias directive in /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf at line 3 will probably never match because it overlaps an earlier Alias.
