    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 :eek: . But then it gave me a 403 error.

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

    Thanks,
    Pushkar

    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?

    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.
