Hi I created droplet using one click installation of phpmyadmin on Ubuntu. In starting domain.com/phpmyadmin was working but after adding ssl to doamin it is suddenly stopped working. Please suggest how to solve it.

server {
listen 80;
server_name thimatic-apps.com;
rewrite ^/(.*) https://site-name.com/$1 permanent;
location / {
root /phpmyadmin;


server {

    listen 443 ssl default_server;
    listen [::]:443 ssl default_server;
    root /var/www/html;

    # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
    index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

   server_name thimatic-apps.com;
   ssl_certificate /root/site-name.com.chained.crt;
   ssl_certificate_key /root/site-name.com.key;
   ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
   ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

In order to regain access to PHPMyAdmin you will need to:

  • Create the correct Nginx configuration to point to the /usr/share/phpmyadmin directory as /phpmyadmin
  • If you have not, you’ll need to set up php-fpm with nginx so that the PHP scripts are run properly

This guide covers setting up the LEMP stack you are running.
