This question already has an answer here:

i'd like to setup phpmyadmin in Ubuntu without asking for parameters in prompts, i don't know if there's a way to pass these parameters in the command: sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin and give the options like the server type "apache2" and mysql admin password.

Thanks a lot.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


phpmyadmin appears to be using debconf for the configuration of the main package. Which means the standard pre-seeding method applies.


Also, if you set the installer to non-interactive configuration (DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get -y install), you can simply script or manually update the configuration files after the package has been installed.
