Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - Installing phpMyAdmin


Overview

The phpMyAdmin package allows you to interact (manage dbs, tables, columns, users, etc) with your database through a PHP GUI. This article will detail installing the phpMyAdmin web interface on the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) platform.

Note: This article assumes you have installed mysql-server prior to running the following command to streamline the configuration process. This can be installed by running the following command 'sudo apt-get install mysql-server -y'

Setup phpMyAdmin

1. Start by installing the phpMyAdmin package from the command line.

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

2. During installation you will be asked to select a Web server to run the phpMyAdmin interface. Select either Apache or lighttpd and press enter.

3. You will be asked to configure a database for phpMyAdmin.  Select Yes and press enter.

4. Provide a password for the database administrative user.

5. Provide a MySQL application password for phpmyadmin.

6. Launch a Web browser and login to phpMyAdmin with the username and password created during installation.

http://ip.to.your.server/phpmyadmin

Additional Information

1. The configuration wizard took care of creating all necessary config files for phpmyadmin. Take a peak at the /etc/phpmyadmin directory to see the configuration files.

ls -al /etc/phpmyadmin

2. If you need to make updates to the configuration in the future you will want to pay attention to the db-config.php file and the .conf file that corresponds to the web server selected in step 2 of the Setup phpMyAdmin section.
