PhpMyAdmin Problem on Unbuntu 14.04 and LEMP

Hi guys,

Okay newbie here so apologize if I sound stupid :)

I have followed every tutorial on creating phpmyadmin and I tried testing it ( Now, it seems odd since it redirects to the homepage again.

I even tried and it doesn’t work too.

I have absolutely no idea where is wrong and do you have any suggestions for me in solving this?

Thanks for your reply Kamal, but in the interim I just decided to start over with a new Droplet. I suppose the practice will do me good anyway ☺


Without bumping this thread - I would like to know if there is way of fixing this without creating a new Droplet?

I’m experiencing the exact same issue as OP - I setup a LEMP stack, and installed WordPress. I followed only to visit and it show the WP homepage.

I have created a new sym relationship between the correct folders (/html) as required by Ubuntu 14.04, but it still doesn’t work. – I assume that the first relationship put in place is still causing the direct to the homepage?

Can i remove the initial relationship and let the updated one (correct one for 14.04) be used?

Many thanks, and sorry for bumping an old thread!


Could you point to a specific tutorial that you followed? It’s easier to help figure out a problem if you know what steps have already been taken. I’d suggest this tutorial:

Do other php files work as expected?
