Install phpMyAdmin on a LEMP server

Step One—Install phpMyAdmin


Start off by downloading the program from apt-get.

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

During the installation, phpmyadmin will ask you if you want to configure the database with dbconfig. Go ahead and choose yes.

Input MySQL’s database password when prompted and click ok.

When phpmyadmin prompts you to choose a server (either apache or lighttpd) hit tab, and select neither one.

Step Two—Configure phpMyAdmin


You now have phpMyAdmin installed on your server. In order to access it, you need to take one more step.

Create a symbolic link between phpMyAdmin and your site’s directory. If you were using the previous tutorial, it may be still located in the nginx default directory, otherwise link it with the appropriate place:

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

Restart nginx:

sudo service nginx restart
