  • Logged in as root or a user with sudo privileges
  • MariaDB/MySQL must be installed

Step 1: Update the apt package tool to ensure we are working with the latest and greatest.

apt update && upgrade

Step 2: Install PhpMyAdmin and PHP extensions for managing non-ASCII string and necessary tools.

apt install phpmyadmin php-mbstring php-gettext

During this installation you’ll be asked for the web server selection, we will select Apache2 and select ENTER.

In this step, you have the option for automatic setup or to create the database manually. For us, we will do the automatic installation by pressing ENTER for yes.


At this setup, you’ll be asked to set the PhpMyAdmin password. Specifically for the PhpMyAdmin user, phpmyadmin,  you’ll want to save this in a secure spot for later retrieval.

Step 3:  Enable PHP extension.

phpenmod mbstring

Note: If you’re running multiple domains on one server then you’ll want to configure your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf to enable PhpMyAdmin to work.

nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Add: this line

Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

Try save enter clr+o press enter then ctlr+x to exit

Step 4:  Restart the Apache service to recognize the changes made to the system.

systemctl restart apache2

Step 5: Verify PhpMyAdmin installation by going to http://ip/phpmyadmin (username phpmyadmin).
