phpmyadmin configuration program doesn't start after abort (LEMP, Ubuntu 20.04)
As I was following on this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-with-nginx-on-an-ubuntu-18-04-server, halfway I entered a wrong option. That is why I aborted the installation proces, removed phpmyadmin with the commands below and tried to restart the installation.
sudo apt-get remove phpmyadmin
sudo apt-get purge phpmyadmin
sudo apt-get autoremove
Now, when I enter the following commands as to restart the installation proces, no program is started that takes me to the next step, which is:
*During the installation process, you will be prompted to choose the web server (either Apache or Lighthttp) to configure. Because we are using Nginx as web server, we shouldn’t make a choice here. Press tab and then OK to advance to the next step.
Next, you’ll be prompted whether to use dbconfig-common for configuring the application database. Select Yes. This will set up the internal database and administrative user for phpMyAdmin. You will be asked to define a new password for the phpmyadmin MySQL user. You can also leave it blank and let phpMyAdmin randomly create a password.*
Any advice on how I can restart the installation procedure? I am installing on Ubuntu 20.04
