I successfully installed phpmyadmin, via apt-get install phpmyadmin

However I can't find the directory for phpmyadmin, I want it to appear on /var/www/phpmyadmin so that I can use it via URL.

Where is it?

You can find your phpmyadmin files in /usr/share/phpmyadmin directory.

If you really want the files in /var/www/phpmyadmin use the following command:

cd /var/www && sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin phpmyadmin

Thanks! Exactly what I just did a while ago. –  Defensor Sep 8 '12 at 8:26
In that case, I recommend accepting the answer. This will give the poster credit, and mark this problem as solved. –  Steve Kroon Sep 8 '12 at 13:43
