I messed up my phpmyadmin, I haven't logged in phpmyadmin for a while, and as a result I forgot my password, so I purge it like so: sudo apt-get purge phpmyadmin.

I did get some error messages asking for my password but I forgot that, so I just pressed ignore, after that, I installed phpmyadmin again like so: sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin. This time I wont be forgetting my password.

But now, when I logging to my phpmyadmin, I get a 404 not found error page!?

How do i completely remove phpmyadmin?
