cannot access phpmyadmin on nginx with magento installed

Posted September 2, 2020 1.2k views

I have phpmyadmin installed on my server running nginx and my magento site. However, When I browse to magento responds saying it cannot find what I’m looking for. How can I set this up properly so that subfolder is properly routed?
