How to move PhpMyAdmin from Apache to Nginx

I accidently installed PhpMyAdmin assuming that I had Apache installed with this tutorial PhpMyAdmin

However, I forgot that the install[Laravel Market] (

installs Nginx. So now I somehow need to move my PhpMyAdmin to Nginx or should I just delete PhpMyAdmin and start again?

Many thanks!

Hello, @kidsclub

You can also follow our existing tutorial on how to install phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 20.04 -

Keep in mind that you need to cover the Prerequisites which include two more tutorials which are the initial server setup and in your case how to setup a LEMP stack (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP)

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
