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

Where are the PHP files located and what does the Apache file look like for the parent domain it’s hosted at (leave out any sensitive information).

Hello, @pacificsofttechltd

You can check our tutorial for installing phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 18.04 (if you’re not using 18.04, just expand the drop-down menu by clicking the white arrow in the blue field and select your Ubuntu version)

If you’re not sure what went wrong with your installation, feel free to start from scratch as the process is not that long.

If you have any questions, let me know!
