Question

Installed PhpMyAdmin On Nginx For Drupal But I Get 404 Error

  • Posted January 8, 2015

I created a new droplet with the Drupal application and the DO system chose the nginx web server. I needed to install phpmyadmin so I followed the DO tutorial on how to setup phpmyadmin on nginx and installed phpmyadmin and also create a symbolic link it ( sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /usr/share/nginx/html ) but going to http://my-ip/phpmyadmin gives a 404 error.

I have never used nginx before, what can I do to fix this please. Thanks.

I have to ask, did you restart nginx?

$ sudo service nginx restart

As well phpMyAdmin is based of php. Did you configure php in your server {} block?

$ sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

Check for location ~\.php$ { }

server {
    . . .
    . . .
    other configs....
    . . .
    . . .
    location ~ \.php$ {
        try_files $uri =404;
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include fastcgi_params;
    }
}

Then restart:

$ sudo service nginx restart

I installed nginx & php my self and did not use the automatic installer so I’m not 100% sure how it differs.
