Hi @ankitayus2008,

Can you please show us your Nginx configuration file as well as the output of the following file /etc/phpmyadmin/conf.d/pma_secure.php

It seems like your Nginx configuration file contains some redirection rules which kick when you access http://myip/index.php. Having said that, I can’t pinpoint the issue unless I know what has been written in the config file.
