phpMyAdmin is in Debian repository. Isn't it also in RHEL? I prefer installation from repository, not from tar.gz, because otherwise you have to manually install it again and again with new release.

Download phpMyAdmin from, create a virtual host for phpMyAdmin on your server or simply create a phpMyAdmin folder in your DocumentRoot directory. Extract the files into the new directory phpMyAdmin directory and modify the config.php file as needed.
