Hi @danielrebollar17,

There can be multiple reasons behind this issue, it can be due to your FireWall, your Nginx configuration or something with the phpMyAdmin application.

Let’s start with Nginx, please post your phpMyAdmin configuration file. Have you enabled it, have you reloaded Nginx after creating the file?

Next stop would be your Firewall, make sure whether you are using Iptables or ufw to have port 80 and 443 enabled. You can check if they are enabled using

ufw status


iptables -L
