I have a laptop running Ubuntu 16.10 (Mate), which I use as a local server just for testing websites that I develop. I recently switched from Apache2 to NginX. I have successfully set up NginX so that all my PHP based sites are running, and I get the output of
phpinfo(), so I have PHP working.
The instructions I've found for getting phpMyAdmin to work with NginX seemed pretty simple:
sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /usr/share/nginx/html/
sudo service nginx restart
- clear the browser cache
- Open phpMyAdmin in the browser at
I did all those steps, but I get a 404 not found error. I've tried moving the symlink to phpMyAdmin to different places, such as
/var/www, which is where my other websites are, but it hasn't helped. It seems no matter where I put phpMyAdmin, it won't open.
What is the correct way to set up phpMyAdmin so that I can open it on my local NginX server?
