phpmyadmin configuration problem
 
HI guys,

I am a newbie and green to the world of Linux. I have installed phpmyadmin however, I am unable to start it. I am not using ISPconfig and I do not have a domain (Is it necessary?). But whenever I try 'http://localhost/phpmyadmin' it gives me a 404 error.

I have tried almost everything with the config.inc.php file that the walkthroughs told me to no avail. So I pull out the error log for apache2 and here it is:

As you can see, I even tried to put phpmyadmin directory under my root folder :o . But then it gave me a 403 error.

I am completely lost. Any kind of help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Pushkar

Ok, and you're using http://localhost/phpmyadmin, not http://localhost/phpMyAdmin or anything else (Linux is case-sensitive)?

Do you see the default Apache page when you use http://localhost ?

pushembekar 8th March 2006 21:47

I get the same error with either URI (I am using http://localhost/phpmyadmin). I can see the directory structure with http://localhost in which I have two directories: apache2-default and phpmyadmin (Yes, 'm' and 'a' in smallcaps)

Thank you for your interest falko.

And what happens if you click on the phpmyadmin directory?

pushembekar 9th March 2006 16:17

I get the 404 Not Found error.

falko 9th March 2006 19:26

Can you try http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ (with a trailing slash)? Does it work?

Resolved
 
Hi all,

I have just resolved the problem I was facing.

I was just looking at the httpd.conf and found the entry:
Code:

Alias /phpmyadmin/ "/home/pushkar/phpmyadmin/"
I changed that to:

Code:

Alias /phpmyadmin/ "/var/www/phpmyadmin/"
... and I was done.

Thanks falko and till, without you I would have given up on phpmyadmin. Great tool by the way.

Hope someone else will find the thread useful.
