no. that procedure creates the link to /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf, but then I believe fcgid doesn't have the permission to read from /usr/share/phpmyadmin, because when I try to access http://server/phpmyadmin
I get offered the php source and not the real php web page.
Found out that in /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf, before <IfModule mod_php5.c> you need to add:
Options FollowSymLinks +ExecCgi
AddHandler fcgid-script .php
FCGIWrapper /var/www/php-fcgi-scripts/web1/php-fcgi-starter .php
allow from all
