phpMyAdmin is a free and open-source tool written in PHP, designed to handle the administration of MySQL and MariaDB databases through a web browser. It allows users to manage databases, tables, fields, and execute SQL queries.
Step 1: Update the system
Before installing phpMyAdmin, it's always a good practice to update the system packages to the latest version.
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -y
Step 2: Install Apache and PHP
phpMyAdmin requires a web server and PHP to function. Install Apache and PHP using the following command:
sudo apt install apache2 php libapache2-mod-php
Step 3: Install MariaDB
If you haven't already installed a MySQL or MariaDB server, you can install MariaDB using the following command:
sudo apt install mariadb-server
Step 4: Install phpMyAdmin
Now, install phpMyAdmin package using apt package manager:
sudo apt install phpmyadmin
During the installation, you will be prompted to choose the web server. Select "apache2" using the spacebar and press Enter.
Next, you will be asked to configure the database for phpMyAdmin. Choose "Yes" and set a password for the phpMyAdmin application.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
Step 5: Configure Apache
