I'm trying to find the apache.conf file of the phpmyadmin package to see the contents, but I don't want to install it because I've installed phpmyadmin manually (to solve the mysql-client-5.6 compatibility problem).

I know how to find package contents or file sources (from example, here, or using apt-file), but I don't know how to find the contents of that file.


Download the Debian package:

apt-get download phpmyadmin

And extract the contents to a folder

dpkg -x phpmyadmin_4\%3a4.5.4.1-2ubuntu2_all.deb phpmyadmin_extracted
gedit phpmyadmin_extracted/etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf
  • Yes I made a mistake writting it, you can remove the correction know (I did the same in my question). – Peregring-lk Sep 27 '17 at 12:12
