I installed MySQL through terminal and also installed MySQL client through software center. Now, how can I open the MySQL client. I have to create, edit, database and tables in it.

How can I open phpmyadmin?


phpmyadmin is not included in mysql-client, you need to install it manually.

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run :

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

When the installation is done, you can open phpmyadmin in your browser at this address : http://localhost/phpmyadmin.

If you still have a 404 error run :

sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/html

And try again.
