Question

phpmyadmin not loading

I followed the instructions here https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-phpmyadmin-on-a-lemp-server/

When I navigate to mydomain.com/phpmyadmin/ the browser wants to download the index.php file.

My goal: upload an sql file from another server so I can transfer sites to d.ocean. Then delete phpmyadmin
