How do I change phpMyAdmin access url?

January 7, 2015 51.4k views

I'm trying to change the default access url for phpMyAdmin from /phpmyadmin to something less common.

After googling, the only file I was able to find and edit was /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf - I changed the default aliases there, but after restarting apache it didn't seem to make a difference. I was still able to access it via /phpmyadmin and my new alias didn't work.

Some other sites say I have to edit httpd.conf or https-alias.conf - but I can't find those files, and there is no alias list in 000-default.conf

You need to add apache2 config :
sudo ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf-available/phpmyadmin.conf
sudo a2enconf phpmyadmin.conf
sudo service apache2 reload
