I selected WordPress during droplet creation. Now, I can't access Help!

During droplet setup, I selected to install WordPress. Does it mean that PHPMyAdmin will not be installed on my droplet? I can't access /phpmyadmin/ now.
Error "The requested URL /phpmyadmin/ was not found on this server."
If phpmyadmin is not installed, then where the hell WordPress is storing its data?
Actually, I want to setup Virtual Hosts to run multiple sites. But main site is working but new site is asking for database storage during WP setup.

Do I need to install LAMP if I wanna use Multiple sites?

Please help.

Hey there,

PHPMyAdmin is just a UI to help you manage your MySQL server. It doesn't come pre-installed on any of the images besides the PHPMyAdmin Image. The WordPress image does have a MySQL server pre-installed and configured, which is where WordPress stores its data.

We actually have a fantastic tutorial that covers how to set up multiple WordPress sites on a single droplet, here. The WordPress One-Click is the same as a LAMP droplet with one WordPress site already configured. You should be able to add additional sites by following that tutorial, no problem.

If you need PHPMyAdmin, you can install it by following this tutorial as well.
