Can't access phpMyAdmin after installing on new droplet made with "Drupal on Ubuntu" one-click application?
Here’s what I did:
1) I created a new droplet using the “Drupal 7.32 on Ubuntu 14.04” one-click application. This creates a LEMP server with Drupal install at
2) Next I followed the steps on how to setup the initial server using the tutorial at Initial Server Setup with Ubuntu 14.04.
3) I then followed the steps on how to install phpMyAdmin on a LEMP server at How To Install and Secure phpMyAdmin with Nginx on an Ubuntu 14.04 Server
The article in step 3 above said to use the
ln command to create a symlink like this:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /usr/share/nginx/html
But that didn’t work so I asked for help at the bottom of that tutorial and contributor “kamain7” suggested I create the symlink like this:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/html/drupal/phpmyadmin
But that didn’t work either and no one else has volunteered any other advice. Is it something with the symlink? Is their something odd with the Drupal on Ubuntu one-click application I am not aware of? Am I doing something wrong?
