Where is the phpmyadmin installed when I run apt-get install phpmyadmin?


Use dpkg -L phpmyadmin to list the files installed by the package.

  • I want to move the phpmyadmin to /var/www which is the apache web root folder – dave May 27 '10 at 8:50
  • Why? The phpmyadmin Ubuntu package comes with a proper apache2 vhost configuration. Now if you really want to put everything in /var/www, maybe you should install it manually instead of using a package. – ℝaphink May 27 '10 at 9:30
