I installed apache, mysql, and php on my Ubuntu 12.04 server but after logging in all I see is a white screen displaying a forward slash. Is there something else I need to configure or enable?

    # phpMyAdmin default Apache configuration

Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin

<Directory /usr/share/phpmyadmin>
        Options FollowSymLinks
        DirectoryIndex index.php

        <IfModule mod_php5.c>

Which URL are you trying to access? Can you please post your phpMyAdmin's Apache .conf file? –  Bruno Martins Aug 31 '13 at 21:16
    
@BrunoMartins I've added the conf file to my question. I'm trying to access localhost/phpmyadmin - I'm presented with a login page then proceed to enter user and PW and get the white page with a slash –  CR47 Sep 1 '13 at 0:45
    
Did you install phpmyadmin before or after installing apache and mysql? –  Pieter Sep 2 '13 at 8:53
    
@Pieter after apache, mysql, and php –  CR47 Sep 2 '13 at 15:19
    
@CR47 Just wanted to make sure about that(sounded like something was mis-configured). Does apache's error log provide any indication of a problem/error? –  Pieter Sep 2 '13 at 17:10
