So as I have been installing my LAMP stack, I looked up my IP address at www.icanhazip.com, and attempted to load http://server-ip-address/phpmyadmin/ and it will not load the phymyadmin login page. It just thinks and thinks and thinks...
When I go back over various ways to get Drupal running on Ubuntu14.04, there is this article: Install phpmyadmin in Ubuntu
After I supposedly "Configure Apache2 for phpmyadmin" in step 3, I am prompted to restart:
sudo service apache2 restart
I get the following return:
* Restarting web server apache2 [fail]
* The apache2 configtest failed.
Output of config test was:
apache2: Syntax error on line 223 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/phpmyadmin/apache2.conf: No such file or directory
Action 'configtest' failed.
The Apache error log may have more information.
This is with the end goal of creating a Drupal site with a cheap web hosting service that does not include Drupal pre-installed. As such, I used some code of all the php packages I could need for Drupal:
sudo apt-get install php5 php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-intl php-pear php5-imagick php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-ming php5-ps php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl
I got no complaints from terminal, but maybe this was too much?
One more thing, do I need hosting service to test phpmyadmin? Is that what is meant by server-ip-address in the various descriptions of how to get phpmyadmin running? Or just the local ip address of your machine... I should know better, but its not working to give me feedback on which, and this type of question is breathtakingly vague for google...
Edit: I hoped that a simple purge would do it, with a different good luck charm, but it is not working. Elsewhere on the web the combined methods were recommended, but still it posts this error.
