I am trying to run phpmyadmin on ubuntu 9.04
I installed phpmyadmin through apt-get install and configured it to use apache-2

php files can be run correctly
mysql server is set up properly

I can't figure out what's wrong...
Can somebody help?

Where is the actual phpMyAdmin folder? – random Oct 11 '09 at 11:20

ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

and use your web browser to go to http://server.address/phpmyadmin/

to be on the safe side - configure it manually to one non-default vhost and even better - set apache rules to limit access to it only from trusted subnet.
