How to solve phpmyadmin installed but not found issue in ubuntu?

Create a link in /var/www like this:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/

Note: since 14.04 you may want to use /var/www/html/ instead of /var/www/

If that's not working for you, you need to include PHPMyAdmin inside apache configuration.

Open apache.conf using your favorite editor, mine is vim :)

sudo vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Then add the following line:

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

For Ubuntu 15.04, 16.04 and 18.04

  • sudo ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf-available/phpmyadmin.conf
  • sudo a2enconf phpmyadmin.conf
  • sudo service apache2 reload
