Hi, congratulations for the LAMP appliance, I found it really nice and it will be useful on our office for our intranet.

I will appreciate if you can help me installing PHPMYADMIN on the LAMP appliance, release 2008.12.09, since I tried with the instructions of this post:


But they didn't work on our appliance.

I enabled the universe repository, and use this commands:

apt-get update
apt-get install phpmyadmin

It downloaded the aplication, and after the process end, the folder var/www/phpmyadmin/ with the files was not created.

Aaparently the package was installed on our LAMP:

        php5-mcrypt 5.2.3-0ubuntu1 MCrypt module for php5
        php5-mysql 5.2.4-2ubuntu5.3 MySQL module for php5
        phpmyadmin 2.11.3-1ubuntu1.1 Administrate MySQL over the WWW
        procps 3.2.7-5ubuntu3 /proc file system utilities
        psmisc 22.6-1 Utilities that use the proc filesystem

I also did this:

To set up under Apache all you need to do is include the following line in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

Thank you!

phpmyadmin package

The phpmyadmin package installs to /usr/share/phpmyadmin not /var/www/phpmyadmin.

During installation it should ask you what web server you are using (eg. apache2) so the package can be automatically configured to use it. In other words, you shouldn't have to manually configure apache.

Just point your browser to:
