You need to look in the configuration file to see where it is set up.

Something like this will find it

find /etc/httpd/ -print0 | xargs -0 grep phpmyadmin

Which will return something like this

/etc/httpd/conf.d/http.conf:    Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/local/share/phpmyadmin

Or look for the folder itself

locate phpmyadmin


find / -type d -name "phpmyadmin" -print

Master, did you ever find your phpmyadmin folder? I installed phpmyadmin today form the repos and it was installed to /usr/share/phpmyadmin. It is likely to be the same location for you too. – Richard Holloway Aug 13 '10 at 23:31

It depends on where it was installed. If you can access it via the web, you can find out by looking at your apache/favorite_httpd config files.

For cPanel/WHM server, below is the location for phpmyadmin


It is not recommended to edit any files directly in a cPanel server, something may broke(Unless of course you know what you are doing).

Working of phpmyadmin is little bit different in cPanel, simply calling "" do not work in cPanel by default and can only access within from cPanel or WHM.
