Question

phpmyadmin unconfigured after installation

Hello,

I am following this guide https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-secure-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu-20-04 to install phpmyadmin and after I “sudo apt install phpmyadmin php-mbstring php-zip php-gd php-json php-curl”, I receive as response “0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.”. So, everything is installed, but can’t configure the phpmyadmin. Any suggestions ?

Hello,

In addition to what has already been mentioned, I could suggest installing PHPmyAdmin manually as per the instructions here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-to-install-manually-phpmyadmin-on-ubuntu

That way you would have full control over the installation and also get the latest version.

Best,

Bobby

Hi @Vasilis Skarleas,

let’s assume you’ve already installed phpmyadmin. What happens if you remove phpmyadmin and install it again? Are you promoted with the message that is shown in the tutorial?

You can try:

apt remove phpmyadmin

Remove it and install it again. Then I assume you should be able to continue.
