You need to manually copy it over like this:
sudo cp /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/phpmyadmin.conf

what about in CentOS., what files I need to copy?

Add the following to the bottom of the file:

sudo cp /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/phpmyadmin.conf

I’ve managed to make it to the login page, but only after restarting apache. $ sudo systemctl restart apache2.service

If you attempt timkaarsemaker’s solution but it doesn’t work, try restarting apache2.

Thanks. It’s working for me.
