Hi @dhameliyamilan972,

If you want to access PHPMyAdmin in Wordpress installation because you want to manage your database, So here hoe to do this?

To install PHPMyAdmin, run a simple command:

sudo apt install phpmyadmin

If you’re using apache server, then do this:

sudo ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf-available/phpmyadmin.conf

sudo a2enconf phpmyadmin.conf

sudo service apache2 reload

If you’re using Nginx, then do this:

sudo ln -s /user/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/public_html/phpmyadmin

nginx -s reload

/var/www/public_html/ - This is location direcotry location of wordpress site

To access the phpmyadmin, Type https://yourdomain/phpmyadmin
