I configured nginx with apache2. it seems works, but I can not log in. it shows me the site is unavailable when I type my password and submit. then I retype mydomain/phpmyadmin/ once again I logged into the admin. How is it possibe?

phpmyadmin nginx block:

location ~* ^/phpmyadmin { proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_pass; client_max_body_size 10m; client_body_buffer_size 128k;

proxy_connect_timeout 90;
proxy_send_timeout 90;
proxy_read_timeout 90;

proxy_buffer_size 32k;
proxy_buffers 8 16k;
proxy_busy_buffers_size 64k;
proxy_temp_file_write_size 64k;

I just spent a good long while trying to get this to work on my setup. Basically exactly the same with an Nginx reverse proxy onto an apache backend with phpmyadmin in a subdirectory. <br> <br>The thing that fixed it for me was to set the phpmyadmin config variable <br> <br>$cfg[‘PmaAbsoluteUri’] <br> <br>to the url that your users should see. In my case it was something like <br> <br>$cfg[‘PmaAbsoluteUri’] = ‘’; <br> <br>I did manage to get Nginx to rewrite the redirects correctly in order to let me in but I found phpmyadmin was riddled with links that were incorrect so I figured fixing my Nginx configuration was not the solution.

it didnt like that last code block as… <br>in the 000-default file edit the [VirtualHost *] instead of [VirtualHost *:8080] <br>the [ ] and suppose to be angle brackets btw

The problem is that your apache virtual host is named *8080 <br>In your ports.conf change it to; <br>NameVirtualHost * instead of NameVirtualHost *:8080 or whatever it is. Keep the Listen 8080 part <br>Next go into sites-enabled and edit your 000-default and edit the line <VirtualHost *> instead of <VirtualHost *:8080> <br>restart apache
