Can you provide some clarification? You mentioned that you created your droplet using the PHPMyAdmin one-click but are sharing an Nginx configuration while the PHPMyAdmin one-click image uses Apache.

On the one-click image the PHPMyAdmin configuration is located in /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/phpmyadmin.conf which indicates /usr/share/phpmyadmin as the directory root for PHPMyAdmin.

Your configuration references /phpmyadmin. In this place (root), nginx is expecting a full directory path to the location on the server (not the location used in a browser).

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.
