Install phpMyAdmin On Ubuntu 12.10

In this quick and easy post I will show you how to install phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu using the apt-get command and then also what to do during installation when you get presented with a few options.

Install phpMyAdmin Ubuntu

You will need to open a new terminal window to do this which can be quickly done by pressing CTRL+ALT+T. Then you can run the following command.

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

During the installation you might be asked for some information like what type of web server you are running. If you followed the LAMP tutorial on this site then just pick Apache2 and hit enter. It will also ask you if you would like it to configure a database that is required, say yes to make life easier for you.

After this it will ask you for the databases administrator user password as-well as the password you want to use for phpMyAdmin, it will finish installing the rest automatically afterwards.

After you finished all of this you might have to restart Apache or run the following command to reconfigure phpMyAdmin. (It messed up during installation for me this time but never before, I fixed it thanks to this post.)

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart (Restarts Apache)

sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin (Reconfigure phpMyAdmin like during installation with a few other small settings.)

You should now have phpMyAdmin running and be able to access it by either going to http://localhost/phpmyadmin or I hope this post has helped you install phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu, please don’t forget to share/like/plus-one! Thanks.
