phpMyAdmin is a very common and handy tool that most of the developers use. It is available on almost every server. Installing phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu server is even easier, you just need to [sourcecode language="plain"]sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin[/sourcecode] but what if we accidently skip the configuration screen where phpmyadmin makes modifications to apache? Dont worry just do the following Edit Apache's configuration file (assuming you are using apache2) [sourcecode language="plain"]sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf # better to use the following command instead of the one above #gksudo gedit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf[/sourcecode] Add the following line of code inside apache2.conf: [sourcecode language="plain"]Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf[/sourcecode] Now restart Apache: [sourcecode language="plain"]sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart[/sourcecode] Go to /phpmyadmin/ and login with your mysql username and password.
