Opening phpmyadmin 5.5.24-0ubuntu0.12.04.1 - (Ubuntu) on Ubuntu

Opening PhpMyadmin on Ubuntu Server is easy. You just need to follow the following instructions.


  1. Type in http://localhost/phpmyadmin on the address bar of Firefox.
  2. Type in the username and password. The user name is normally root because the php and it’s necessary files are located in the root directory of the system
  3. (optional/follow only if you got problem  logging in) Sometime logging in leads to the file that is not present inside phpmyadmin folder.If this case happens then one reach to “file not found” default page of firefox.  To prevent that from happening ,type in http://localhost/phpmyadmin/index.php on the address bar (remember that you have already logged into the phpmyadmin so, you don’t have to login again)
