How To Install phpMyAdmin In Ubuntu?


Hey there! Are you struggling to install phpMyAdmin in Ubuntu? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! In this blog post, we’ll walk through the step-by-step process of installing phpMyAdmin on your Ubuntu machine. I’ll also provide a live example to make things even clearer. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Update and Upgrade

The first thing we need to do is update and upgrade our Ubuntu system. Open up your terminal and run the following commands:

$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade

Step 2: Install Apache

Next, we’ll need to install Apache, a popular web server software. Run the following command:

$ sudo apt install apache2

Step 3: Install MySQL

After installing Apache, we’ll need to install MySQL, a powerful relational database management system. Run the following command:

$ sudo apt install mysql-server

During the installation process, you’ll be prompted to set a password for the MySQL root user. Make sure to choose a strong password and remember it!

Step 4: Install phpMyAdmin

Now that we have Apache and MySQL installed, we can proceed to install phpMyAdmin. Run the following command:

$ sudo apt install phpmyadmin

During the installation process, you’ll be asked to choose a web server to configure for phpMyAdmin. Select apache2 and hit Enter.

You’ll also be prompted to configure the database for phpMyAdmin with dbconfig-common. Choose Yes and enter the MySQL root password that you set earlier.

Step 5: Configure Apache

To configure Apache to work with phpMyAdmin, we need to edit the apache2.conf file. Run the following command:

$ sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Scroll down to the bottom of the file and add the following line:

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

Save the file and exit the editor.

Create a User on MySQL

Now, we will create a user for MySQL using the following command.

Step 6: Restart Apache

To apply the changes, we need to restart the Apache web server. Run the following command:

$ sudo service apache2 restart

Step 7: Access phpMyAdmin
