Did the reboot, suggested by @thousifme18 solve your problem? If not, here are some ideas:

  • Kindly note that usually URL is case sensitive. Ie. PhpMyAdmin folder’s name is phpMyAdmin but you are trying to access


  • Check **port 80 ** on Firewall
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 80 -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
  • Check if **port 3306 ** inbound allowed on Firewall
sudo iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 3306 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth1 -p tcp --sport 3306 -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

KIndly reboot your server and try again, if that dosnt work run this command sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y
