phpMyAdmin on CentOS

I’m stuck at installing phpMyAdmin, because it seems I do something wrong all the time. I have already installed LAMP and vsftpd+ftp on my droplet (CentOS 6.4). What should my next steps be?

yum install phpMyAdmin

Doesn’t work, as there is no such package.

So I had to upload a .tar archieve with the latest version of phpMyAdmin to my FTP, uncompressed/copied the files over to /var/www/html/. Now is the question what next? I’ve been trying to make config files and access the GUI installer via web browser, but here is where I’m completely lost. Can anyone please write a step by step instruction on how to install the thing starting from this point?

P.S. Also, how will my correct command look like to make a symbolic link for ./phpMyAdmin-VERSION-LANGUAGE/ -> ./phpMyAdmin/ ?
