    This blog will help you to understand how to install securely phpMyAdmin to manage your databases on Ubuntu 14.04

    How to install phpMyAdmin:

    Step 1: First you need to update the package index on your server with this command:


    Now write this command to install phpMyAdmin:

    $ sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin


    Now Press Y to continue installation

    • For the server selection, choose apache2.


    • Select yes when asked whether to use dbconfig-common to set up the database


    • You will be prompted for your database administrator's password
    • You will then be asked to choose and confirm a password for the phpMyAdmin application itself

    After installation is complete, now we need to do is explicitly enable the php5-mcrypt extension by writing this command:

    $ sudo php5enmod mcrypt

    Now please restart Apache for your changes to be recognized:

    $ sudo service apache2 restart

    Now access the web interface by typing localhost/phpmyadmin. You will see error "Page Not Found". This error comes because phpmyadmin is not included in apache2.conf. Write the following commands:

    $ sudo nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

    Now add this line somewhere:

    Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

    Now restart apache again.

    $ sudo service apache2 restart


    All done! Now access the web interface: localhost/phpmyadmin or server-ip-address/phpmyadmin and you will see the following page:
