1.remove symlink to phpmyadmin.conf file

rm /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
  1. make apache listen on port 81

    sudo nano /etc/apache2/ports.conf

    NameVirtualHost *:80 Listen 80 Listen 81 <IfModule mod_ssl.c> # SSL name based virtual hosts are not yet supported, therefore no # NameVirtualHost statement here Listen 443 </IfModule>

3.Now create the vHost:

        sudo vi /etc/apache2/sites-available/phpmyadmin

              <VirtualHost *:81>
               ServerName phpmyadmin
               DocumentRoot /var/www-81

4.Enable the vHost

    sudo a2ensite phpmyadmin

5.restart the Apache

     sudo service apache2 restart
  1. Create a symlink to the phpmyadmin directoy: cd /var/www-81

         sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin/

phpMyAdmin is a web application, not a daemon. You will have to make your webserver listen on that port and then edit your vhosts so only that port has access to phpMyAdmin.
